The series of exercises are also designed to enhance interoperability between both nations’ militaries force ensuring they are prepared for any contingency, particularly those involving crisis response.

“SF23 represents another step in the deliberate and strategic relationship between the US and Cyprus and contributes to regional stability,” a statement release by the foreign ministry said.

During the course of the exercise, US forces temporarily deploy to a number of locations around Cyprus to meet training objectives.
