LONDON (AP) — Cyprus’ president says he’s certain the Brexit agreement between Britain and the European Union safeguards the legal rights of all Cypriot and other Europeans living and working inside two sovereign British military bases on the east Mediterranean island nation.

President Nicos Anastasiades also said the draft Brexit deal protects the rights of the Cyprus Republic because EU law will continue to apply on bases territory.

Anastasiades said Cyprus wants to strengthen the already close historic, economic and social bonds it has with Britain. Some 11,000 Cypriots are estimated to live and work inside two military bases that Britain retained after Cyprus gained independence from British colonial rule in 1960.

Anastasiades said the draft Brexit deal includes a section on the British Bases that was the product of negotiations between the Cyprus, the EU and the UK.

  1. So some on Cyprus apparently want the British bases and their outside revenue to continue. That is an interesting change of pace from the usual complaints on here about the existence of those bases.

  2. Now , i understand …why some people call the country of Cyprus ….. a Floating Aircraft Carrier of Nato!

    Really….10,000 Cypriots ….contribute to launching the illegal war crimes bombings of foreign countries …on the orders of this Anglo White Supremacist from the former colonial owners of Cyprus…..England…from allegedly the independent and sovereign nation of Cyprus!

    Therefore, the British Governor of Cyprus…Mr. Anastasidis and his ruling party …. are compensated for surrendering the sovereignty of Cyprus to declare war …which is now relegated to the British…. from their bases in Cyprus …and representing the interests of the organized crime family called Nato!

    By the way …. John …have you considered the net loss in revenue and lost lives to the people of Cyprus …if one of the Anglo white supremacist enemies …Russia…. decides to respond to the bombings by the British of Syria…. by doing what they threatened to do …to the source of those bombs… obliterate it!

    Imagine that …the payed employees and citizens of Cyprus ….will find out to late ….that the blood money they receive from their British includes … giving up not only their own lives …but their rights to decide …who they wage war against….and die for!….

    I wonder how many of these co called Cypriots working at these bases of war …. are British subjects…and for that matter ethnic Turks….since…it does not state Greek Cypriots, but Cypriots!

    Suggesting that some on Cyprus …. funded by Anglo White Aristocratic Supremacist … who provide the blood money for not only the British Bases but 800 U.S bases to dominate the economic and political sovereignyty of the independent countries of the world …. make a strong case for preserving and not negotiating the removal of those bases …. to get the Turks out of Norther Cyprus ….is disgusting …because and only legitimizes corrupt traitors collaborating with Nato interests and occupation..and are nothing more than financial prostitutes … spitting on the graves of Greek Cypriots who died fighting not only the British Colonialist in 1960 , but the the Turkish invaders in 1974!

    John…spare me your lectures of rage and anger …in exposing the hate crimes of your masters …the Aristocracies of london and Washington ….who worship only one god… the one of money and greed!

    Good job …John… harmony at any price…. may be your belief …but don’t try to sell me or any other readers with any sense of decency!

    How silly of me … to not recognize … what is really important to the people of Greece and Cyprus ..handing over there countries to Anglo White Supremacist …who have been buyinG up the sovereignty of countries of the world for centuriies … and John … let me help you .. it WAS CALLED FOREIGN AID … BUT NEVER GOES TO THE PEOPLE…. JUST TO THE SOME …CORRUPT LEADERS OF THE RULING PARTIES OF GREECE AND CYPRUS!!

    WHAT YOU NEED TO DO …IS STOP READING THE LIKES OF TNH AND THEIR GREEK SECRET SOCITY SPONSORS ..AND THE NEW YORK TIMES … AND START DOING YOUR DUE DILLIGENCE ON THE ALTERNATE NEWS SOURCES … AND JUST COMPARE THE STORIES FROM MULTIPLE SOURCES .. AND THEN USE COMMON SENSE!
