Overview of Armenia

The Republic of Armenia (Armenian:?????????????????????????), commonly known as Armenia, is a republican state located in the Transcaucasia region of eastern Europe, which is part of Eastern Europe. On the administrative border, Armenia is located between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, bordering Turkey to the west, Georgia to the north, Azerbaijan to the east, and Iran and the enclave of Azerbaijan to the south, the Autonomous Republic of Nakhichevan, with Yerevan as its capital. Before the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, Armenia was one of the republics of the Soviet Union. At present, there is a territorial dispute between Armenia and neighboring Azerbaijan over Nagorno-Karabakh, as well as a diplomatic dispute with Turkey over the historical perception of the Armenian genocide, but in recent years relations have been gradually repaired and communication and dialogue have been re-established through the exchange of visits by heads of state and other means.

Armenia is a member of the Council of Europe and the Collective Security Treaty Organization. In addition, Armenia supports the sovereignty of the Nagorno Karabakh Republic, which declared its independence in 1991.

Armenia was blocked by Azerbaijan and Turkey after the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, and then began to improve, but the country's economy is still poor due to poor resources, shortage of funds and other factors.

In 1992, the Republic of Armenia established diplomatic relations with China at the ambassadorial level. In December 2002, the country joined the World Trade Organization. Armenia's main economic source is agriculture and animal husbandry, of which agricultural production is concentrated only in the lowlands near the capital.
