Communists condemn Parliament’s position in favour of Partnership for Peace.
The Communist Party of Malta condemns the position taken by the Maltese Parliament vis a vis Partnership for Peace (PfP), where today there seems to be a consensus between the Government and the Opposition to allow Malta to continue to partecipate in the PfP. Initially, this decision was taken by the Nationalist Administration behind the people’s back.
“The Party sees this as a flagrant violation of the Constitution of the Republic of Malta. As a neutral country, Malta must keep away from military blocs. The PfP forms part of a NATO programme and it works independently from the U.N Peace keeping operations. NATO uses PfP to safeguard its imperialistic strategy”.
“The government of Cyprus, which has a military base imposed on it, refuses to join Partnership for Peace. We believe that this should be an example for Malta which boost that it embraces a policy of neutrality”.
