Armenia–Romania relations are the international contacts between Armenia and Romania. Both countries established diplomatic relations on December 17, 1991. Armenia has an embassy in Bucharest; Romania has an embassy in Yerevan. Both countries are full members of the Organization of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation.

There are around 3,000 people of Armenian descent living in Romania. Modern relationships between Armenia and Romania are rooted in part in the modern history of the Armenian people: after the Armenian genocide of 1915, Romania was the first state to officially provide political asylum to refugees from the area; and when in October 2007 the President of Armenia, Serzh Sargsyan, received the delegation headed by the Romanian Minister of National Defense, Teodor Meleșcanu, he "noted that the Armenian-Romanian friendship was deeply rooted in history and it was not by accident that Romania was the first State to recognize the independence of the Republic Armenia."[1]
