Armenia declared independence on September 21, 1991, following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. The country consists of 11 provinces, with Yerevan as its capital, and takes the form of a parliamentary democracy.
The official language is Armenian, although Russian is also widely used. The official religion is Christianity (Armenian Apostolic Church). The currency of Armenia is the dram (AMD).
Greek-Armenian relations have a long historical background and are associated with the coexistence of Greeks and Armenians during the Byzantine period and during the Ottoman Empire.
Greece is one of the first countries that have officially recognized the Armenian genocide committed by the Ottomans in 1915.
The two countries cooperate in the framework of international organizations (UN, OSCE, CoE, BSEC) while Greece strongly supports the further development of the EU's relations with Armenia.
There is Greek Embassy in Yerevan since 1993 and Armenian Embassy in Athens.
