KKE expresses full solidarity with the earthquake-hit people of Turkey and Syria

Statement by Dimitris Koutsoumbas, General Secretary of the CC of the Communist Party of Greece (KKE), concerning the disastrous earthquake that hit Turkey and Syria:

"We express our full solidarity with the peoples of Turkey and Syria, who currently need urgent and coordinated international aid to rescue the missing persons and provide effective support to the people affected by the earthquake. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families of the victims and our wishes for a speedy recovery to the injured.

It is once again demonstrated that despite the development of science and technology, and the great potential of our era for the protection of human life, all this is sacrificed on the altar of profits, big interests, military armaments and imperialist wars, for which the peoples pay dearly in every way.

Above all, it is proven that there is nothing that divides the peoples; on the contrary, they share the same sufferings and problems. That is why they must be united by the joint struggle against the system of exploitation and barbarity."
