The Cyprus-US defence cooperation is strengthened with another joint training of the Underwater Demolition Team with the US Navy Seals of the Special Operations Command Europe.

From January 17 to February 4, 2022, a joint training was held at the Naval Base “Evangelos Florakis” between the Special Operations Teams, the Underwater Demolition Unit of the Naval Command and the US Special Warfare Task Unit Europe as part of the ongoing effort to improve the readiness of naval forces in the region. This training enhanced the interoperability between the Special Operations Teams of the US and Cyprus through the exchange of tactics, techniques and procedures employed by Special Operations Forces on a tactical basis.

The Chief of the National Guard, Lieutenant General Democritus Zervakis, visited the Naval Base where he noted the constructive cooperation between the participants and congratulated the Special Operations Team as well as the crews of Fast Boats on the effort they put to complete the required training.

This training is part of the ongoing bilateral cooperation that began in September 2021 and will continue throughout the year, focusing on the development of interoperability between the Special Operations Team and the Marine Units between the US and the Republic of Cyprus. The training has significantly contributed to the increase of the operational capabilities of the National Guard, while maintaining the strong relationship between the Armed Forces of the two countries.
