Armenia–Germany relations have always been stable and solid, with both countries continuing to work together and advance through the years in cooperation. Both countries' leaders have discussed bilateral relations and noted that they have considerably improved over the last few years.
Germany made steps to recognize the Armenian Genocide in 2005, during the rule of the Socialist-Green coalition led by Chancellor Gerhard Schröder. However, while calling on Turkey to accept its "historic responsibility", the German government declined to use the word "genocide". During the Cold War, the need to keep Turkey's support had caused NATO members such as West Germany to ignore the topic. In 2015, public discussion about the Armenian Genocide and the explicit usage of the term "genocide" in official language has been renewed in Germany.
