The relationship between Germany and Armenia has always been stable and solid, with both countries continuing to work together. The leaders of both countries' have discussed bilateral relations and noted that they have considerably improved over the last few years.
Germany made steps to recognize the Armenian Genocide in 2005, during the rule of the Socialist-Green coalition led by Chancellor Gerhard Schröder. However, while calling on Turkey to accept its "historic responsibility", the German government declined to use the word "genocide". In 2015, public discussion about the Armenian Genocide and the explicit usage of the term "genocide" in official language has seen a large increase in Germany.
In March 2015, the German Federal Foreign Office reported positive political, economic and cultural relations between both countries. Armenian soldiers have been attached to German contingents during their deployment in Afghanistan. The division was guarding the coalition airport in the northern city of Kunduz.
