Communist Party of Greece: Involvement in Imperialistic Policy Aggravates Greek-Turkish Relations

ATHENS – The Communist Party of Greece (KKE) in an announcement on Monday concerning developments in Greek-Turkish relations, said that "a policy of involvement in imperialistic plans aggravates Greek-Turkish relations and is dangerous for the Greek people. The latest developments are very alarming."

"In essence, it is an intensification of Turkish provocativeness in the context of the competition between the Turkish and Greek bourgeoisie, with the participation of the two countries in the general imperialistic competition for control of the energy sources and pipelines with the strategic alignment of New Democracy, SYRIZA and other bourgeois parties," KKE asserted.

Greece and Turkey, noted the announcement, are both NATO members and both participate in the decision making against the "alliance of wolves" against the people. "The fairy-tales that the United States and European Union can guarantee peace in the region and protect the country's sovereign right have been disproved. The escalation of Turkish provocativeness is part of the bargain for shared management of the Aegean and parts of the Eastern Mediterranean," the party added.
