The UN is responsible for the provision of accommodation for all UN troops in Cyprus. This is done in conjunction with the Republic of Cyprus under a status of forces agreement between the UN and Cyprus. As the UN peacekeeping force in Cyprus is funded from the UN's assessed peacekeeping budget, all UN member states are liable for the costs of the peacekeeping operation. The UK's share of this comes from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office-administered peacekeeping budget, drawn from HM Treasury.
