The Communist Party of Malta on the visit by USS Whidbey.
The Communist Party of Malta is once again noting the flagrant violation of the Maltese Constitution by the present Administration. The visit to Malta of the American warship USS Whidbey is a clear evidence of how the neutrality clause is being violated.
“This U.S. war vessel was directly involved in the 'illegal' War against Iraq. This War had the support of several imperialist countries, including the USA, England and France, with the support of other satellite countries which comprised of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Qatar, Bahrain and others. This war did not have the approval of the United Nations.”
The Party sees the consensus reached by the two major parties as a threat to the Maltese Constitution, to amend and to review the neutrality clause, with the main aim to adhere to imperialist policies.
The Communists affirms that “the policy of neutrality should be further strengthened, so that no Administration would find any excuse to engage Malta in a conflict. Neutrality should serve Malta to work for a peaceful agreement in conflicts and for humanitarian aid”.
