Armenia–Pakistan relations refers to international and bilateral relations between Armenia and Pakistan. Due to Pakistan's close ties with Turkey and Azerbaijan, relations with Armenia are poor. Pakistan is the only country that does not recognize Armenia.
The main issue is the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The Nagorno-Karabakh region is mainly populated with ethnic Armenians, but is recognised by all nations (except Abkhazia, South Ossetia, and Transnistria, which too lack the recognition of most nations) as being de jure inside the borders of Azerbaijan. Pakistan had supported Azerbaijan during and after the Nagorno-Karabakh War.
Because of its close relations with Armenia's adversaries (Turkey and Azerbaijan), Pakistan has been reluctant to recognize the Armenian Genocide and maintains that during the war a large number of Armenians and Muslims were also killed. Being the second country after Turkey to recognize Azerbaijan, Pakistan has close relations with Azerbaijan.
