Armenia was represented by 25 athletes at Baku 2015, winning one silver medal through Greco-Roman wrestler Migran Arutyunyan.

Hrachya Rostomyan, the Armenian Olympic Committee secretary general, served as the country's flagbearer at the Opening Ceremony, while Armenia was the only nation not to have an athlete flagbearer present at the Closing Ceremony with a figure in Baku 2015 uniform carrying out the duty. 

Armenia confirmed it will compete in the inaugural European Games in March 2015, despite its continuing conflict Azerbaijan.

A final decision was made by the Executive Committee of the Armenian National Olympic Committee following months of deliberation.

Fierce tension has existed between Azerbaijan and Armenia ever since the two countries received independence in 1991 following the break-up of the Soviet Union over ownership of Nagorno-Karabakh, a landlocked region in the South Caucasus which lies within Azerbaijan's internationally recognised borders.

More than 30,000 people were killed and 1.2 million displaced before Russia brokered a cease-fire in 1994.

The mountainous region, inhabited predominantly by ethnic Armenians, provoked more tension in the months leading up to Baku 2015 after Azerbaijan shot down what it claimed was an Armenian military helicopter on their territory east of Nagorno-Karabakh, killing three crew members.
