THE KKE ON THE DEVELOPMENTS IN THE EASTERN MEDITERRANEAN AND MIDDLE EAST
A dangerous situation is being formed. Greece's participation in the US-NATO exercise "Bright Star 2018" and other military exercises must cease. The struggle against the anti-people political line of the SYRIZA-ANEL government, which is the flag-bearer for the interests of NATO and the EU in the region, must be strengthened.
The Press Office of the CC of the KKE issued on 4 September 2018 a statement on the developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Middle East:
«The KKE expresses its intense concern over the developments in the Eastern Mediterranean and Middle East, where the military escalation is sharpening, in the framework of the US-NATO-EU confrontation with Russia over Syria and the control of the Idlib region (bastion of the jihadists), with the involvement of other powers, such as Israel, Turkey and Iran. .
The danger of the repeating of missile attacks, like those of last April against Syria, which were unleashed by the USA, France and Britain, with the pretext of using chemical weapons, is great.
In recent days, powerful Euro-Atlantic military forces have been gathering in the region, in which a major military exercise of Russia is already under way, ending on the 8th of September and directly after this we have the preparation of the US-NATO "Bright Star 2018" exercise, with the participation a large number of states, amongst them Greece.
The situation is dangerous and connected to he imperialist antagonisms in the Balkans, the accession of the Western Balkans into NATO and the EU, and even to plans for the change of borders between e.g Serbia and Kosovo, also the intensification of the aggressiveness of Turkey, which is also planning to create a military base in the occupied part of Cyprus.
The KKE calls on our people to be ready.
To escalate its struggle against the imperialist interventions and wars for the distribution and redistribution of the natural resources and the markets in our region.
To decisively condemn every attack against Syria and the Syrian people.
To struggle in a mass way against the anti-people political line of the SYRIZA – ANEL government, the flag-bearer of the interests of NATO and EU in the region and to demand for their to be no Greek involvement in the imperialist plans. No involvement in the US-NATO "Bright Star 2018" exercise and the other military exercises. To struggle so that the Suda base-launching pad and the other military bases are closed ."
