Harbouring of Military Vessels violate Malta’s Constitution.

The Communist Party of Malta condemns the visit of Chinese military vessels in Maltese Harbours, as these are not congenial with the Neutrality clause in the Maltese constitution.

“Malta should not continue to allow military warships in its territorial waters, and instead Malta should once again form part of the Non-Aligned Movement. Malta’s role should be to promote peace in the Mediterranean region”, stated the Party.   

The Party said that “although China, as a country does not threaten sovereignty of other people, like western imperialism does, still the presence of military vessel in Malta goes against the spirit of the Maltese constitution.” 

The Communist Party reiterates that “the new Labour Administration should not follow in the footsteps of the previous Nationalist Administration where US and NATO warships were allowed to make us of our facilities during conflicts in the regions.”

Malta’s position backs reactionary regimes

The Communist Party of Malta looks upon the government’s decision to recognize the Syrian Opposition National Coalition, the sole legal representatives of the Syrian people, as a rash decision. This is in line with imperialist policies.

“The government should have followed the Canadian President and recognize those secular forces, such as the ‘National Coordination Committee for Democratic Change’ whom truly belief in peace, equality, and democratization of society”, said the Party.

“The Syrian National Council is mainly made up of fundamentalists and foreign forces which many Syrians see them as a threat to the ethnic and religious populations that live in Syria. In fact the main countries that are backing these forces are those reactionary regimes who are staunch supporters of US imperialist policies in the region, such as Bahrain, Jordan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait.”

The communist movement and parties continues to support all those who believe in a secular state where all religions have a place in society. Till date the only alternative is a fundamentalist Islamic regime.
