Greek Cypriot officials announced on Wednesday that Greek Cypriot Administration will host a rapid response unit for US diplomatic missions and US citizens in the region if the situation in Iran deteriorates and authorities consider the scenario an emergency.

According to the news reports published in Greek Cypriot media, Greek Cypriot Government Spokesman Kyriakos Koushios said that Greek Cypriot Administration has accepted to act as a temporary emergency response unit in case of emergency, responding positively to a request made by US military officials.

Towards the end of 2018, there were rumours in Cyprus of the existence of an American airbase, likely used for humanitarian purposes.

However, those were quickly dismissed by Greek Cypriot leader Anastasiades at the time.
