Cyprus has an importance for Britain, as it has SBAs in the island especially for intelligence, communication. British policy is directed more towards the external circumstances than the internal affairs in Cyprus, such as considering Soviet threat. Britain also considers its role in the UN and EU. The most important international organizations such as EU and UN continue to be involved with the Cyprus Question. Britain, as a former colonial power in Cyprus continues its policy towards Cyprus in the UN and US with the aim of not losing its military sovereignty over any solution appropriate for the other states.
