In a press office release on D. Trump’s statement, the Press Office of the CC of the KKE mentions the following:

“Trump’s statement had elements of a war communique, posing enormous risks for all the peoples of the region.
The demand for NATO’s further involvement in the Middle East, along with sanctions on Iran, sharpen the already tense situation, bringing the risk of a generalized outbreak closer.

The Greek governments have a huge responsibility in turning Greece into a US-NATO military camp, with military bases throughout the country that could be a potential target of reprisals. Prime Minister Mitsotakis’ overt support for US policy engages the Greek people in great adventures and must be denounced.

It is now necessary to intensify people’s struggle to annul the Greece-US agreement and close the base of Souda and all US-NATO bases in Greece. Our country must not be used as a launching pad for war interventions. All Greek military forces must return from NATO missions.”
