History

    After Cyprus' independancy in 1959, Akrotiri and Dhekelia remained under British direct. UK had planed for restituting a part of its Sovereign Base area (equal to 117 km2) to Chypre — mainly a part of Dhekelia — in case of reunification by the United Nations plan at its entrance in the UE. However this plan was rejected by Greek-Cypriots in April 2004 and thus this measure was not carried out.
