YEREVAN (Interfax) - Armenian Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan will be leaving for Kazakhstan on Thursday for a two-day working visit, the press office of the Armenian government has said in statement.

Relations between Armenia and Kazakhstan are not at their best, the latter supporting the "brother" Azerbaijan in the Upper Karabakh conflict.

In 2014, Kazakhstan pushed back against the accession of Nagorno-Karabakh as part of Armenia to the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), with President Nursultan Nazarbayev claiming that states could only join via UN-recognized borders. During Nagorno-Karabakh conflict of April 2016, Kazakhstan voiced complaints over Armenia. A summit of the EAEU in Yerevan was cancelled after Kazakhstan refused to attend it in an apparent show of support for Azerbaijan.
