Akrotiri and Dhekelia


officially the Sovereign Base Areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia is a British Overseas Territory on Cyprus. The Areas, which include bases and other land, were retained by the British, under the 1960 treaty of independence, agreed and signed by the United Kingdom, Greece, Turkey and representatives from the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities, which granted independence to the Crown colony of Cyprus. This has an important role as a station for UKSIGINT and provides a vital strategic part of the United Kingdom Communications gathering and monitoring network in the Med and the Middle East.
