Cross-region read replicas are now available in public preview. You can create up to five read-only replicas in any region supported by the MySQL service.
To get started, please use the Azure portal to select the location for your read replica: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/mysql/howto-read-replicas-portal#create-a-read-replica
