The Communist Party of Malta comments on Russia and Korea.
The Communist Party congratulates the Russian Communist Party on the result obtained in the last parliamentary elections, where the Party managed to obtain 20% of the popular vote, which translated into 92 seats (12.5 million votes). Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Communist Party of Russia has again managed to increase its support and has become the second largest party in the country, while the other Left party, The Just Russia Party, has achieved 8.6%, which translates into 64 seats.
“Both parties are collaborating together in the cause of the working people, and to combat the poverty problem in Russia. Poverty has increased due to neo-liberal policies that were adopted by the United Russia Party led by Vladimir Putin.
The Communist Party also expressed its solidarity with the Korean People on the loss of Kim Jong Il, the Korean leader. The Party calls upon the U.S. Administration to change its policy of embargo against the Korean people. This embargo has caused major difficulties which resulted in food shortage and lack of medicines.
The Communist Party of Malta believes that the US should treat DPRK as it treats Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, Kuwait, Etophia, Turkey, Honduras, Haiti and Qatar. Sovreignity of the Korean peninsula should be safeguarded, so that the two people move towards the re-unification of Korea.
