Key aspects of diplomatic relations
Switzerland played an active role as mediator in the negotiations between Armenia and Turkey on the normalisation of their bilateral relations. This mediation work contributed to closer relations between Switzerland and Armenia, even though the resultant agreement – the Zurich Protocols, signed on 10 October 2009 – was not subsequently ratified by either Turkey or Armenia.
Armenia and Switzerland have concluded bilateral agreements in many areas. A visa facilitation agreement came into force in 2016.
