The government of Cyprus continues to remain silent about the reports of an American air base that is still in existence on Cyprus territory.
The President of the Republic of Cyprus, Mr Nicos Anastasiades declined to comment on the information because even the US Department of State was not informed about the aledged situation. However, he stated that the base was probably used for humanitarian purposes only. Earlier, ABC News reported that the United States spent about USD $70 million on the base where some helicopters were reportedly based. This has not been officially confirmed.
