The undersigned Communist and Workers’ Parties, denounce the latest criminal military attack of the US, under Trump’s command, against the territory of a foreign country, specifically the international airport of Iraq, which resulted in scores of dead and wounded, among them officials of Iraq and an Iranian General. This constituted a flagrant violation of international law and the sovereignty of Iraq.
We denounce the appeals of the US towards further involvement of NATO in Middle East, along with the sanctions against Iran which reinforce the dangers of a general conflagration in the wider region.
The fierce competition, which has unfolded for the control of markets, energy sources and their transportation routes, is very dangerous for the peoples of the region and the world.
The pretexts used by the US, NATO and the EU to “whitewash” the new imperialist attack, have also been used during imperialist wars against Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Libya, and they constitute a provocation against these peoples. We reiterate our solidarity with the peoples of Iran and Iraq and condemn the inhumane sanctions against the Iranian people and any foreign interference within these two countries.
We support the right of the peoples of Iran and Iraq to fight and make their demands against this criminal and anti-popular policy. We condemn the repressive measures used to implement it and demand that they be stopped immediately. We also express our sorrow for the tragic human loss due to the downing of the Ukrainian airliner.
We express our warm solidarity with all peoples who are facing these imperialist attacks. We call upon the peoples of our countries all over the world to decisively condemn this latest imperialist crime and to demand from the governments of their countries no support for and no involvement in such imperialist plans, and to shut down all military bases in all countries serving as launching pads for these kinds of attacks by the US and NATO.
