The US State Department is "disappointed" that Cyprus allows the ships of the Russian Navy to its ports

The United States continues to put pressure on countries that have at least some contacts in terms of military-technical cooperation with Moscow. In this case, we are talking about an American attempt to put pressure on the authorities of Cyprus.


This is due to the fact that the island's authorities do not interfere with the ships of the Naval fleet Russia to make calls to the ports of Cyprus. The number of such calls has increased in recent years due to the activity of the Russian fleet in the eastern Mediterranean Sea, including the activity associated with the implementation of tasks in the Syrian Arab Republic.

Clark Cooper, Assistant to the Head of the US State Department for Military Policy, spoke about this. According to him, the United States is "disappointed with the fact that Cyprus continues to allow Russian warships into its ports."

Mr. Clark adds that the Cypriot authorities "did not take appropriate measures to deny Russia the admission of Russian ships to the ports of the island."

According to the US Assistant Secretary of State, Cyprus "needs to take such measures", because "otherwise Cyprus will move in the wrong direction."

The "wrong direction", from the point of view of US officials, is anything that is not in American interests.

If at least someone from the Russian Foreign Ministry allowed himself to make such statements, then in the same United States they would instantly declare "interference in the internal affairs of a foreign state." For the United States, such interference has long become the norm, and has already ceased to be noticed.

Clark:

Cyprus needs to expand cooperation in the US in the military-technical sphere.

Here it is worth making only one remark: maybe it will be Cyprus itself, not Washington, to decide with whom to expand cooperation with Cyprus?

2014, the Russian cruiser "Peter the Great" in one of the ports of Cyprus:

    So maybe it's time for our Foreign Ministry to more often poke the State Department in feces from their own statements? Do not hesitate in expressions about "partners" and their nose

      And point out that the disgusting OCCUPANT of northern Cyprus Turkey, regularly enters the seized ports of Cyprus, and the United States about this .... is silent.

    We need to act more decisively so that we are not allowed in, but called, invited to their ports and other countries of the world to their air bases. It is necessary to have military bases on the territory of Latin America, in Asia, in Africa, and not "later", that is, never, but today!

    Well, not only yachts of "ordinary" Russians in Cyprus stand. In payment for yachts, in the "American style of thought" "yachts, surface and submarines" with the St. George Flag at the stern will come to Cyprus. And in general, when the State Department is concerned about something in Russia; My spirits rises! I am very worried from the 4th of the month, it will start motchilovo or 9 days after the counting of votes. Freedom for blacks, let them make purchases without payment, from the word at all!

    We still need to decide with Cuba on the creation of a naval base, this is what I understand to "give bream" to the Americans, and Cyprus is certainly good, but the level is not the same, although not insignificant in the Mediterranean region.

      And what? And there and there it is impossible? And if you really want to? Look, Ukraine has already swung two bases, and everything is in the resort area! And it is even more fitting for Russia to have decent bases in resorts!

    The US ships are allowed into the ports of Ukraine, although they have nothing to do there, they would sit in Norfolk, well, Russia somehow calmly tolerates it, and the states, as bazaar traders, constantly torment. It's time to grow up already.

    So everything is wonderful, the Russian cruiser "Peter the Great" should enter the port in Cyprus and spend $ 20-30 million for parking. The Americans simply allocate this money to Cyprus in the form of compensation and the cruiser does not enter.
    But it turns out something like. Do not let the Russians in, and your advisor does not care about your economic problems !!

    I hope that the Cypriots themselves will be able to estimate how much military cooperation Armenia has received, for two and a half years building its foreign policy using cheat sheets from the American embassy in Yerevan.

    The Americans are in every barrel a plug, especially if something is connected with Russia. We will wait until they will be banned from entering international ports. But at that time, we allowed the American warship to proceed unhindered along the Northern Sea Route without prior agreement with the Russian side. A kind of gesture of goodwill.
