Cyprus - beyond the Syrian operation

The official representative of the Government of Cyprus, Prodromos Prodromu, stated that Cyprus will not take part in military operations, and assured that there is no danger to the inhabitants of the island.

Prodromu noted that Nicosia had not received any requests from other states to provide the possibility of conducting operations directed against Syria from the territory of Cyprus. The representative of the government stressed that Cyprus is beyond the Syrian operation, and rumors about the possible use of the British bases of Cyprus against Syria have no basis.

Recall that 10 April, the US announced its readiness to strike a missile strike on Syria for 24 hours. The European Organization for the Control of Airspace Eurocontrol issued an urgent message to airlines recommending caution when flying in the Eastern Mediterranean, including Cyprus.
