Press Statement

The Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) has issued the following statement: Threat of Military Attack on Iran The grave concern expressed by the Government about statement from Israel and the United States threatening military action against Iran is timely. While the Ministry of External Affairs has taken note of the imminent threat of military attack by Israel and the United States on Iran, this concern would have been credible only if the UPA government had not helped Israel’s military capabilities. In January this year, ISRO launched the Israeli spy satellite TecSar. This advanced satellite produced by Israel and the United States jointly is being used to conduct surveillance of Iran. If there is a military attack by Israel on Iran, the TecSar facilities will be invaluable. If the Manmohan Singh government is really concerned about the military attack on Iran, it should forthwith cancel the launch of two more satellites in this series. It should forthwith stop all military collaboration with Israel.
