Tsipras meets South Korean PM, adopts the dangerous U.S. position regarding Korean Peninsula

Regarding the visit of South Korea's Prime Minister Lee Nak-yeon in Athens and his meeting with his Greek counterpart Alexis Tsipras, the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE) issued the following statement:

"The common statements of Mr.Tsipras and South Korean Premier about the economic relations between the two countries, among them the business of Greek shipowners in South Korea while the shipyards in Greece are under-running or shutting down, must not hide the following very significant thing: Mr. Tsipras adopted all the pretexts of the USA about the nuclear program of North Korea. These (pretexts) have as an actual aim the promotion of the geostrategic interests and dangerous military plans of the USA, which are threatening peace in the Korean Peninsula and the broader region, in the framework of their competition with other powers.

The "wishes" of Mr.Tsipras regarding nuclear weapons consists another sample of hypocrisy, since the SYRIZA-ANEL government, especially after the meeting with Trump, aligns with and embellishes the policy of the U.S., the country which is in the first place of the countries with nuclear arsenal and abstains from the negotiations for the non-proliferation Treaty.

Also, it consists a provocation for the Greek people the thanksgiving of the South Korean Premier about Greece's participation in the military imperialist intervention in Korea, under the U.S. leadership, from 1950 to 1953, which bloodshed the Korean people, led to the partition of the country and had as a result over 180 dead and 600 injured Greeks."
