Press Statement

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

 Israeli Decision Condemned

 The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) denounces the decision of Israel’s Security Cabinet, in principle, to expel President Yasser Arafat  from the Palestinian  territories.  This decision has been taken after the return of Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, from India.

 The Vajpayee government, which went overboard in trying to please  the Israeli Prime Minister, should immediately come out condemning this decision. If any step is taken to forcibly remove Yasser Arafat, then India should send back the Israeli Ambassador in India.
