Berlin Conference's "wish list" cannot reverse the real causes of Libya conflict — KKE

The Press Bureau of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) issued today a statement, published on 902 portal, about the conclusion of the Berlin Conference on Libya

The statement reads: 

"The Berlin Conference finally has neither brought nor could bring a solution that would ensure peace, stability in Libya and the interests of the Libyan people. After all, the leaders of the Conference themsleves are responsible for the 2011 NATO war and the dissolution of Libya, for the ongoing military conflicts that have brought this country’s people to misery. 

The “wish list” reflected on the draft conslusion for “cease fire”, “respect of arms embargo” or “withdrawal of foreign military forces”, cannot restrain or reverse the real causes of this conflict, the imperialist competitions for energy sources in which both General Haftar and the appointed Prime Minister Sarraj are involved.

The KKE has pointed out that the war conflicts, created by the US, NATO and EU, such as in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya, are open wounds that are “festering” by the competition between the Euroatlantic bloc, Russia and China. 

The “imperialist peace”, with the gun on the people’s head, cannot provide real peace, for the benefit of the people of Libya and the people of the region, [because] it contains the seed of the situation’s sharpening and the war’s escalation. 

Within these conditions which are perplexed by the turkish aggression and the unacceptable Turkish-Libyan agreement for the establishment of the maritime zones, the ND government, continuing the policy of SYRIZA, engages the country even depper in the “vicious circle” of imperialist plans”.
