In a statement regarding the two Greek soldiers who remain detained at Edirne prison in Turkey, the European Parliament group of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) writes the following:
"On the occasion of the effort to utilize, for the creation of impressions, various general and unspecified statements of EU officials regarding the arrest and several-day detention of the two Greek soldiers in Turkish prisons, the Europarliament group of the KKE stresses that, from the very first time, the KKE denounced their detention and demanded their immediate release. This development consists part of the escalation of Turkish aggressiveness.
The effort of the SYRIZA-ANEL government and other bourgeois parties to deposit the hopes for the return of the Greek soldiers in the imperialist wolf pack alliances, the EU and NATO, aims in cultivating an environment of dangerous complacency and disorientation. Our people must be vigilant. No complacency, no trust to the EU and NATO imperialist unions. Immediate release of the two Greek soldiers".
