Press Statement


The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement:


The Polit Bureau strongly condemns the unilateral decision of the US President Donald Trump to conduct a missile attack against a Syrian airbase under the pretext of the use of chemical weapons by the Syrian government. The US had launched over 60 Tomahawk missiles into Syria which constitutes a brazen military intervention by the United States of America.


It is clear that Donald Trump is pursuing the US administration’s policy of military interventions violating the sovereignty of independent countries by interfering in their internal affairs which is reprehensible under international law and conduct.


The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the renewed effort by the new US administration to pursue through militarization and military interventions its goal of establishing the US global hegemony.
