KKE: "The Warsaw Summit proved the criminal role of NATO"

On the occasion of the NATO Summit in Warsaw, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) released the following statement:

"Pro-Peace declarations with dangerous heated-war decisions".
Source: 902.grTranslation: In Defense of Communism.

The Summit of NATO in Warsaw proved, once again, the criminal role of this imperialist organisation, which decided:

- the further concentration and redeployment of wartime military forces to countries which border with Russia,

- the completion of the installation and operation of the so-called "Missile Shield" with bases in Romania, Poland, with  the naval support and general infrastructure connected to the use of nuclear weapons in a destructive showdown. Its not accidental that the Declaration of the Summit's conclusions states the readiness of NATO to use nuclear weapons,

- the permanency and strengthening of NATO's presense in the Black Sea, the Baltic Sea, North Atlantic, in the Aegean and the Mediterranean, by using for the later two sea regions the pretext of controlling the refugee waves which are created and strengthened by the imperialist wars and the painful consequences against the people.

- the continuation of (NATO's) presence in Afghanistan and Iraq, in West Balkans, Caucasus, North Africa as far as the intense presence of NATO in these areas is connected to the continuation of the military operations in Syria (and) the preparation of a new intervention in Libya.

The decisions of NATO and the deepening of the collaboration with the imperialist EU, (decisions) which are taken in the name of "peace" and "security", have obviously no relation with the actual interests of the people, but only for the "security" of the profitability of the Euro-American monopolies.

The KKE denounces the SYRIZA-ANEL government, which readily and actively participates in all the above dangerous plans of the US, NATO and EU, which in the context of their antagonism with Russia can cause a real holocaust to the people of Europe and generally.

It is now required to invigorate the struggle against Greece's involvement in NATO's heated-war plans, for the exit of our country from NATO's "hornet's nest" and every imperialist alliance, in order to make reality the slogan "Neither soil nor water to the peoples' murderers".
