Kim and Kanye Arrive in Armenia to GIANT Crowd

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got the full diplomat treatment as they arrived in Armenia to the cheers of an enormous crowd and tons of media.

Although their trip is just days short of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, Kim's rep says it has nothing to do with the commemoration. Kim says she simply wants to get in touch with her Armenian roots.

North and Khloe were also there -- as they were greeted by women in traditional Armenian garb, who presented the fam with bread and salt ... a tradition for greeting dignitaries. They all left the airport together in a minivan.

They plan to visit the genocide monument, museums, meet with politicians and they will reportedly go to the town of Gyumri ... where relatives of her dad may live.
