Pakistan and Azerbaijan enjoy good relations. Relations date back when both nations were part of the Persian Empire and the countries have the same cultural traditions in common especially because of deep Turanian and Persian influences in the two countries.
Modern relations between the two states were established when the republic of Azerbaijan became independent following the collapse of the USSR. Pakistan was among the first countries to recognize Azerbaijan. Trade and cooperation has steadily grown between the two nations, with several summits being held on how to improve trade between the two nations. Pakistan is one of the a few countries to recognize Khojaly Massacre, carried out by Armenia against Azerbaijani people, as genocie.
Azerbaijan, Pakistan "enjoy strategic partnership relations" officials of both countries said in March 2013.
