The Cypriot Underwater Demolition Team (MYK) hosted members of U.S. Naval Special Warfare Task Unit Europe (NWSTU-E) for bilateral training exercise in Limassol, Cyprus beginning on Sept. 7th. The exercise comes as part of a series of similar training events occurring throughout the Eastern Mediterranean aimed at increasing interoperability between NATO allies and regional partners. Reducing response time and increasing readiness to different threats Europe faces are also among the top priorities. Special Operations Command Europe participates in multiple exercises per year within the continent not only with NATO allies but partners like Cyprus giving commanders a wide array of discreet mission options.
