A group of U.S. senators has introduced a bipartisan bill to lift the arms embargo on Cyprus that has been in place since 1987, EUobserver reported April 11.

If approved, the bill would increase cooperation between the United States and Cyprus on various issues, including arms trade and energy, which would be a cause of concern for Turkey. The bill also calls for the establishment of a United States-eastern Mediterranean energy center to facilitate energy cooperation between the United States, Israel, Greece and Cyprus.
