This relatively small country squeezed between Middle East and Eastern Europe can boast not only oil reserves but also the fact that in 1918-1920, it was the first and the only one parliamentary democracy in the Islamic world.

 

With the independence restored by the end of the last century as a result of the collapse of the USSR this nation is getting strategic importance serving together with neighbouring Georgia as a bridge between East Mediterranean and Central Asian regions. As of today, interests of many powers both world and region ones, are clashing in Azerbaijan testing its ability to survive and build a prosperous society despite a number of problems among them the unresolved Karabakh crisis that seems to be one the major stumbling-block to the future development of the whole South Caucasus.
