Armenia-Pakistan relations are extraordinarily poor owing to numerous disagreements. The main issue is Armenia's occupation of the Nagorno-Karabakh enclave, which is populated with ethnic Armenians but is de jure inside the borders of Azerbaijan. Pakistan has supported the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan during and after the Nagorno-Karabakh War. Pakistan also opposes Armenian irredentist claims against Turkey and Azerbaijan. Pakistan does not recognize the 1915 Genocide and maintains that during the war a large number of Armenians and Muslims were killed. Being only the second country after Turkey to recognize Azerbaijan, Pakistan has close relations with Azerbaijan. Azerbaijan supports Pakistan's stand on Kashmir issue.

Armenia has friendly relations with India, and its recognition of Kashmir as belonging to India has also damaged the relations with Pakistan. Pakistan is also the only country that does not recognize Armenia.
