The areas, which include British military bases and installations, as well as other land, were retained by the British under the treaty of independence, signed by the United Kingdom , Greece , Turkey and representatives from the Greek and Turkish Cypriot communities, which granted independence to the Crown colony of Cyprus.
The territory serves an important role as a station for signals intelligence and provides a vital strategic part of the United Kingdom communications gathering and monitoring network in the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
The importance of the bases to the British is based on the strategic location of the island, at the eastern edge of the Mediterranean, close to the Suez Canal and the Middle East; the ability to use the RAF base as staging post for military aircraft; and for training.
In July and August , there were a series of bomb attacks against the pipeline carrying fresh water to the Dhekelia Sovereign Base Area.
In , following a military coup by the Cypriot National Guard attempting to achieve enosis union with Greece , Turkey invaded the north of Cyprus , leading to the establishment of the internationally unrecognised Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
This did not affect the status of the bases. Greek Cypriots fleeing from the Turkish forces were permitted to travel through the Dhekelia Sovereign Base Area and were given humanitarian aid, with those from Achna setting up a new village Dasaki Achnas or Achna Forest which is still in the Dhekelia Sovereign Base Area.
The territory is composed of two base areas. The SBAs were retained in to keep military bases in areas under British sovereignty, along with the rights retained to use other sites in what became the territory of the Republic.
The basic philosophy of their administration was declared by the British government in Appendix O to the treaty with Cyprus, which provided that the British government intended:.
The Cypriot government issues licences for antiquity excavation in the SBAs subject to British consent, and any movable antiquities found in excavations or otherwise discovered become Cypriot state property.
Because the SBAs are primarily required as military bases and not ordinary dependent territories, the Administration reports to the Ministry of Defence in London.
It has no formal connection with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office or the British High Commission in Nicosia, although there are close informal links with both offices on policy matters.
The Administrator has all the executive and legislative authority of a governor of an overseas territory. A Chief Officer is appointed, and is responsible to the Administrator for the day-to-day running of the civil government, with subordinate Area Officers responsible for the civil administration of the two areas.
No elections are held in the territory, although British citizens are normally entitled to vote in United Kingdom elections as British Forces or overseas electors.
The areas have their own legal system, distinct from the United Kingdom and the Republic of Cyprus. This consists of the laws of the Colony of Cyprus as of August , amended as necessary.
The laws of Akrotiri and Dhekelia are closely aligned with, and in some cases identical to, the laws operating within the Republic of Cyprus.
The Defence Medical Services provide emergency ambulance cover based from medical centres in the main bases.
All emergency services are accessible from any telephone using the Europe-wide emergency number In January , a newspaper article appeared in the British press claiming that as a result of budgetary constraints arising from the Great Recession , the British Ministry of Defence drew up controversial plans to withdraw the United Kingdom's 3, strong garrison and end the use of Cyprus as a staging point for ground forces.
The Sovereign Base areas are in a region of geo-political importance and high priority for the United Kingdom's long term national security interests Our military personnel, United Kingdom civilians and locally employed personnel in the Sovereign Base Areas make a major contribution to the national security of the United Kingdom and will continue to do so in the future.
The resolution refers to "relevant UN decisions on the abolition of colonialism, as well as the fundamental principles of international law, which forbid the occupation of territory within the domain of any other country.
The UK government does not recognise Cypriot claims that the UK's sovereignty in the areas is limited. In July , protests were held at the bases by local Cypriots, unhappy with British plans to construct radio masts at the bases as part of an upgrade of British military communication posts around the world.
Locals claimed the masts would endanger local lives and cause cancer, as well as have a negative impact on wildlife in the area. The British and Cypriot governments jointly commissioned health research from the University of Bristol and the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Cyprus, and that research project reported in that there was no evidence of health problems being caused by electromagnetic fields from the antennas.
On 29 August , during the Syrian civil war , some Cypriot and British media sources speculated that long-range ballistic missiles, fired from Syria in retaliation for proposed British involvement in military intervention against the Syrian government of Bashar al-Assad , could hit Cyprus, and could potentially deliver chemical weapons.
In some Cypriot media it was stated that the proposed interdiction of the Syrian civil war, utilising Akrotiri and Dhekelia, could recklessly endanger the Cypriot populations near to those bases.
There is normally no passport check at the border from Akrotiri or Dhekelia to Cyprus. Issues concerning the validity of car insurance and customs are specified by SBAs' administration.
The villages of Xylotymbou and Ormidhia, also in the Republic of Cyprus, are enclaves surrounded by Dhekelia. The northern part is an enclave, like the two villages, whereas the southern part is located by the sea, and therefore not an enclave, though it has no territorial waters of its own.
Territorial waters of 3 nautical miles are claimed, and the right according to the laws of the United Nations to extend the claim of up to 12 nautical miles is reserved.
There is no public airport within the areas, but the RAF Akrotiri airbase is located there, which has a runway suitable for long distance flights, but not used for public flights.
