The Central Committee of the CPI(M) strongly condemns the terror attacks at least at six places, in Paris that have already claimed over 145 innocent lives. The recent spate of terror attacks in Baghdad, Beirut and now Paris appear to be related to US/NATO military interventions.
The Polit Bureau of the CPI(M) strongly opposes the reported moves to launch a military attack on Syria which is to be discussed at a meeting of military chiefs of the US and its allies at Amman in Jordan. The Government of India should come out against any military intervention and advocate a political solution for the conflict in Syria.
From the outset, the blatant aggression of the US-Nato was to effect a regime change in Libya even though it was proclaimed as an intervention to save the Libyan people and for the establishment of democracy. The claim that the killing of Gaddafi marks an end of despotic rule is sheer hypocrisy since it is the US and its allies which prop up the most despotic regimes.
There should be an immediate halt to the military strikes by the Nato in Libya. India should demand an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council to put an end to the military intervention and to initiate talks for a ceasefire and a political settlement.
The Security Council resolution on Libya has been utilized by the Nato for this attack. The five members of the Security Council, which includes India, who abstained on the resolution should immediately demand a review of the resolution. Till then there has to be a halt to the military action by Nato.
