Dhekelia military base entrance

Britain’s offer to cede nearly half of its Sovereign Base Areas territory to a reunited Cyprus remains on the table, it was confirmed last week during what was hailed as the first-ever official visit by a British Defence Secretary to the island.

Sir Michael Fallon said after the meetings in the South: “I hope this will make an important contribution towards an eventual deal.”

The visit was to include signing of a bilateral military cooperation programme.
