The Tudeh Party of Iran strongly condemns the pre-planned military strike by the aforementioned imperialist countries on Syria in the early morning of Saturday 14 April 2018 and considers it to have been an open and flagrant violation of international law and the United Nations Charter. The attack was carried out despite the dispatch of an investigation team commissioned by the secretariat of the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) which had been scheduled to begin its investigation of the alleged chemical attack in Douma, near Damascus, and the identity of its main perpetrators today - Saturday 14 April 2018.
The fanning of the fire of war and military confrontation along with the malicious and inhumane policies of the ruling powers in the United States, Britain and France have further aggravated the situation in the Middle East region and have significantly increased the danger of a more widespread military conflict breaking out across an already volatile region and thus endangering global peace.
The Tudeh Party of Iran calls upon all forces advocating for peace and progress to oppose this new dangerous drive to war in the Middle East by imperialism and to unite in condemnation and resistance to the expansion of the military conflicts in Syria and elsewhere in the region.
Furthermore, the Tudeh Party of Iran calls upon all those forces advocating peace and progress while continuing in their opposition to these neo-colonialist designs of the world imperialism for the Middle East - to employ all of their resolve and strength in order to curtail this course of events and to defending the cause of peace in the region.
