This article analyses evolution of the post-Soviet Armenian foreign policy during the first fourteen years of Armenia's existence as an independent state. The introductory section briefly analyses key regional factors into which the Armenian diplomacy developed - with an emphasis on the historical context connected with unsettled relations with Turkey, the most significant neighbour, and Russia and with respect to the internal development of this small south Caucasian country. Important factors of Armenian foreign policy regarding Nagorno-Karabakh and its neighbour Azerbaijan are analysed together with the (non)recognition of the Armenian genocide and its significance to the relations between Yerevan and Ankara but also Armenia-Russia and Armenia-Iran.
