Cyprus Missile Dispute




NICOSIA, Cyprus -- A new storm over Russian-made missiles has hit Cyprus, with the Cypriot Defense Ministry hotly denying Tuesday that short-range anti-aircraft weaponry had been shipped back to Greece less than a month after delivery.


It follows a dispute last year when the government was forced to cancel delivery of another Russian system, the long-range S-300s, after strong opposition from Turkey to the deal.
