Michael Pompeo informed the President of Cyprus in regards to the decision about the embargo waiver in 2021, concerning, export, re-export, temporary import of non-lethal defense products and defense services controlled by the International Arms Trade with Cyprus as a destination or place of origin.
This took place in the context of the profoundness of relations between Cyprus and the USA.
It constitutes yet another step in favour of Cyprus and its protection at a military level.
Therefore the implementation of the modification of a relationship into a bond is obvious.
In other words, we have the continuation of the first approach which took place after the signing of the contract with ExxonMobil in regards to marine block 10 of the Cypriot EEZ.
It is yet another proof of the potential of the EEZ notion, which is geo-economic, and it influences and upgrades the country’s geopolitics.
Consequently, we obtain different perspectives, because it is all the more obvious now, what the USA position is.
After all, in the most official way, the State Department condemned Turkey’s actions in both the Cypriot EEZ and the EEZ of Greece .
Therefore the embargo waiver is yet another enhancement towards the entire situation in the Eastern Mediterranean.
