You'd be forgiven for thinking that we've met all the Kardashian family members, but as Khloé and Kim made the long trip to Armenia this past week, joining them were more Kardashian family members - and their names begin with K as well. Kourtni, Krista and Kara are cousins of the reality TV stars, and two of them have traveled to the Eurasian country to learn more about their heritage.


Kim, 34, who has also been joined on the trip by husband Kanye West and daughter North West, posted on Instagram Thursday about her relative revelation.

"Khloé & I brought along our cousins Kourtni & Kara Kardashian," she wrote as the family met with Armenia's Prime Minister, Hovik Abrahamyan in the country's capital of Yerevan. "We miss you Krista! Yes we have 3 cousins who are sisters that all start with a K too! LOL."

The fun snap comes from their meeting with the Prime Minister, who praised the Kardashians for the helping the "international recognition and condemnation of the Armenia genocide."

The women then made a pledge to "continue the struggle for international recognition and condemnation of the Armenian genocide."

The pledge, relating to the massacre of 1.5 million Armenians on the eve of World War I — more than three-quarters of the small country's population at the time — was made through an interpreter who relayed a message from the women.

"The Kardashians apologized for not speaking Armenian," a spokesperson said. "But, said they are learning their native language."


Kim later expressed her gratitude for meeting the high-level official. "It was an honor to meet the Prime Minister of Armenia, Hovik Abrahamyan who expressed how proud they are that we are proud Armenians and we have not forgotten our roots! #NeverForget," she captioned her Instagram photo of the meeting.

After landing in the country on Wednesday, the family has been sightseeing and sharing pictures every step of the way.

"Khloe & I visiting Mother Armenia yesterday," Kim captioned another snap. "This statue reminds visitors of the strong female figures in Armenian history. I love how powerful women are and respected so much in our culture!"
