The United States established diplomatic relations with Armenia in 1992, following its independence from the Soviet Union. The United States is committed to helping Armenia strengthen democratic institutions and foster sustainable and inclusive economic growth. The United States strongly supports efforts to pursue a lasting and sustainable political solution to the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict through the OSCE Minsk Group Co-Chairs and promote regional stability, peace, and prosperity.

U.S. government assistance to Armenia supports efforts to strengthen Armenia’s ties to Western institutions, integrate the country into the regional and global economy, diversify trade, and build resilience against external pressures. U.S. assistance supports Armenian government efforts to develop democratic institutions and create an environment for sustainable economic development, particularly in light of the peaceful transition of power in 2018.
