Meeting of KKE with the Syrian Communist Party

On Friday 4th March, at the Headquarters of the CC of the KKE, a meeting was held between Aleka Papariga, GS of the CC of the KKE and Ammar Bagdash, GS of the CC of the Syrian CP, who had been invited to our country by the KKE. Giorgios Marinos, member of the PB of the CC, Elisseos Vagenas, member of the CC and responsible for the International Relations Department of the CC and Ilias Nasir, member of the International Relations Department of the CC, participated in the delegation of the KKE.

At the epicentre of the meeting were the assessments of the two parties concerning the situation in the region, after the popular uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, the mass popular mobilizations in other countries. Views were exchanged concerning the inter-imperialist contradictions and the imperialist plans which exist in the region.

The two parties once again expressed their support for the struggling peoples and denounced the imperialist interventions against the peoples of the region, interventions which are being prepared under various pretexts. And so the imperialist machinations concerning a military intervention in Libya were also denounced within this framework.

Aleka Papariga mentioned the initiatives of the KKE against the military cooperation of our country with Israel, which as the KKE had denounced has as its goal the preparation of the Israeli military forces for a possible attack against Iran.

The course of the global capitalist crisis, the consequence which the peoples experience, as well as issues concerning the development of the class-oriented labour movement, the situation in the international communist and anti-imperialist movement were also questions which were discussed in the meeting.

As the GS of the CC of the KKE the question today is for the anti-imperialist struggle to acquire class characteristics. Today there is the opportunity for the workers to acquire consciousness concerning the dead-ends and limits of capitalism, as well as the necessity of the prospect of socialism.
