As one of the main global political and economic actors, the European Union (EU) has a special place in Azerbaijan’s foreign policy, which adheres to a multivector cooperation and partnership. The relationship between the two parties dates back to 1991. These relations are based on the EU-Azerbaijan Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA), which was signed in 1996 and came into force in July 1999. The agreement defines the legal basis and ensures the framework of political and economic cooperation between Azerbaijan and the EU, except military field. Since then, the EU has gradually expanded the scope of its cooperation with Azerbaijan.
