KKE on the seizure of Greek ships in the Persian Gulf

„The policy of flag-bearer of the US-NATO plans pursued by the Greek government exposes the country and the Greek people to great dangers”, underlines the Press Office of the CC of the Communist Party Greece (KKE) on the occasion of the seizure of two Greek-flagged ships by Iranian naval forces in the Persian Gulf on Friday.

More specifically, the KKE statement (here in Greek) points out:

 
“The raid and seizure of two Greek tankers by the Iranian armed forces is an extremely serious and dangerous development, especially since it apparently comes as a “retaliation” for the seizure of an Iranian oil cargo by the Greek authorities following instructions of the USA, a few days ago.

The policy of flag-bearer of the US-NATO plans pursued by the Greek government in all fronts, including the sanctions against Iran, exposes the country and the Greek people to great dangers, as evidenced by the fact of the seizure of the Greek ships.

What the governments must do here and now is to ensure the release and safe return of the crews of the two ships”.
