Cyprus Republic and British bases Land Agreement

The Republic of Cyprus and the United Kingdom Government has signed an agreement in London regarding the land held by the British bases in Cyprus. The deal signed speaks about 200 square kilometers.

Until now Cypriots were unable to make any developments to their privately owned land which fell within the boundaries of the UK Sovereign Base Areas at Akrotiri and Dhekelia, which count as British territory.

The said agreement now gives the owners of Land increased flexibility to develop private property within the British Sovereign Bases and enjoy the same planning regime as other residents of the Republic of Cyprus – though with “appropriate safeguards” of UK military needs.

The president of Cyprus, Nicos Anastasiades, announced that a deal had been struck with the UK as he sat down for talks with Prime Minister David Cameron at 10 Downing Street.

Mr. Anastasiades also welcomed what he said had been Britain’s “prompt and decisive” actions in helping the country deal with its financial crisis last year.

Mr. Cameron said that his efforts to secure reforms to the European Union would be on the agenda for the talks – as well as “the prospects for peace and reconciliation in Cyprus”.

The base areas, retained under UK jurisdiction when Cyprus was granted independence in 1960 as military not”colonial” territories, are home to around 10,000 Cypriots.

The agreement was announced by Anastasiades on Tuesday during a working dinner with the Secretariat of the National Federation of Cypriots in the UK and was signed between Foreign Minister Ioannis Kasoulides and Foreign Secretary William Hague at Carlton House.
