Cassio comes to find Othello to tell him that the Duke and the Venetian senate needs to speak with him. He says that the Duke has received several messages from Cyprus (presumably about the invading Turks). This becomes important to the play because of the situation with Desdemona and Brabantio. Brabantio complains to the senate that Othello has stolen his daughter, but whereas they might have cared under other circumstances, they are more concerned about Othello defending Cyprus than about Othello's elopement.
