The government of Cyprus says the comments aired by a Russian official, regarding a US military buildup in Cyprus, were unfortunate and considers the matter is closed.

Asked to comment on the issue, Prodromou said on Friday that there have been some unfortunate remarks, however the Republic of Cyprus as an independent country and an EU member state continues to pursue the orientation of the EU.
