KKE condemns Greek Premier Mitsotakis over his support to Venezuelan coup leader Guaidó

In a statement published in 902 portal, the Press Bureau of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) condemns Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis' expressed support to U.S-backed Venezuelan coup plotter Juan Guaido. Mitsotakis met with Guaido on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos.

The KKE statement reads:

"The unacceptable statements of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis during his meeting with coup plotter – puppet of the US in Venezuela – Juan Guaido in Davos, prove the depth of the government’s commitment and involvement in the dangerous for the people imperialist plans of the USA, both in our region and internationally.

The Prime Minister’s interest for the democratic rights of the people of Venezuela is hypocritical, while the government of ND promotes the doctrine “law and order” for the repression of people’s struggles, promotes measures for the restriction of demonstrations, trade unionism and the right of strike, in order to pass its anti-people policy. 

The support of ND government in the filthy intervention of the USA, EU and their allies in Venezuela is opposed to the legally elected President of the country and generally against the Venezuelan people, who are the only responsible to determine the political and social developments in their country.

The KKE expresses, one more time, its internationalist solidarity to the people of Venezuela, the Communist Party and the Communist Youth, who are fighting for the people’s interests."
