Statement of the Press Office of the CC: War goes hand in hand with the crisis
The Press Office of the CC of the KKE made the following statement regarding the machinations against Syrian and Iran:
The escalating tension in the Middle East, with at its centre the violation of Syria’s airspace by a Turkish plane which was shot down, Turkey’s appeal to NATO and the imperialist threats regarding an intervention against Syria and Iran are creating a very hazardous situation which is pregnant with dangers for a new imperialist war in the region.
These developments express the sharpening of the confrontation between the imperialist powers for the control of the region’s natural resources, the commodities’ transport routes and the markets.
They demonstrate that the capitalist crisis and imperialist wars go hand in hand and threaten the peoples with new wide-scale bloodshed.
In these conditions the KKE calls on the workers to be in a state of readiness and vigilance:
So that Greece is not dragged into the new imperialist wars of the USA and NATO, which are being prepared against Syria and Iran, and which will have tragic consequences.
No “treaty obligation” must be observed which directly or indirectly entangles the country.
The base at Suda must not be used. It must be closed down now!
All Greek military forces which are abroad must return home.
The military exercises and all the agreements for military cooperation with Israel must be cancelled.
The struggle for the disengagement from the imperialist plans and NATO must be strengthened.
