Russian President Vladimir Putin agreed the deal after talks with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades.
The deal with Cyprus comes as tensions with the West over the Ukrainian conflict continue.
President Putin said that other countries should not be concerned and that the port’s main use would be for counter terrorism and anti piracy.
Nothing to see here.
BTW, wouldn’t it be nice to have some Asheville class and an AGP based nearby? Say, in Haifa?
