The EU will deploy observers to Zimbabwe's general elections, expected in July.
The EU and Zimbabwe's government signed a memorandum on 28 May, which outlined the guidelines for election monitors, AFP reports.
This is the first time in 16 years the EU will be monitoring polls in the country.
It is also the first elections following the removal from power of long-time ruler Robert Mugabe and the death of veteran opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai.
President Emmerson Mnangagwa is running for office, with Nelson Chamisa - who sees himself as Mr Tsvangirai's heir - expected to be his main challenger.
