Armenia has maintained its cultural identity for thousands of years through the rise and fall of neighboring empires. Today, more than 1 million Armenians live in Europe, with 8 million diaspora worldwide. As a democratic nation with Christian heritage, Armenia shares common values with Switzerland, and has developed strong bilateral relations on a range of important issues.
We foster and promote friendly relations between Switzerland and Armenia in the cultural, economic, social and political spheres. Highlights of our activities include creation of the Parliamentary Friendship Group Switzerland-Armenia (PGArm), bilateral foreign delegation visits, and formation of the Switzerland-Armenia Chamber of Commerce to facilitate international business.
Azerbaijan is a dangerous and corrupt autocracy which oppresses its people and wages war on its neighbors. Their state oil company, SOCAR, operates fuel stations, Migrolino franchises, and other energy services in Switzerland. Every Swiss Franc taken by SOCAR directly finances the destruction of democracy and human rights. Swiss consumers demand better. Join our movement to STOP SOCAR and purchase responsibly.
Artsakh, also known as Nagorno-Karabakh, has been inhabited by Armenians for thousands of years. Its people have been fighting for reunification with Armenia for nearly a century, after it was split by Stalin and the USSR. Today the region has been violently annexed by Azerbaijan, a corrupt and anti-democratic regime. We support the right of self-determination for the people of Artsakh.
