The Cyprus government is expecting to be informed whether Britain is considering basing Typhoon jets at RAF Akrotiri in Cyprus to enforce a no-fly zone over Libya, Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou has said.
Invited to comment on relevant reports by British media, Stephanou said that after we saw this information in the media, weve had some contacts and we are expecting to get some information on this issue. We still have nothing, he said.
Asked if Britain is obliged to give information and ask for the Republic of Cyprus permission, Stephanou said there are certain Treaties regarding the operation of the British Bases in Cyprus. As far as I know information must be given on this issue, he noted.
Britain has retained two military bases in Cyprus after the country gained its independence in 1960 from British colonial rule.
