Throwback - Communists say Malta should rejoin the Non-Aligned Movement
The minuscule Communist Party of Malta said today that Malta should rejoin the Non-Aligned Movement.
The 26th Congress of the Non-Aligned Movement opens today in Tehran. Malta was part of this movement 'under the able leadership of Dom Mintoff', but today Malta no longer takes part, the PKM observed.
"The decision in 2004 that Malta was no longer a member of this movement, ultimately led to Malta becoming a tool of the imperialist countries. Imperialist policies and actions resulted in wars and the dismemberment of many sovereign countries with the ultimate goal of taking their wealth and natural resources. Mintoff himself had described this policy as the biggest obstacle to world peace ".
"Former Cuban leader, Fidel Castro has described the purpose and existence of this movement: to ensure the national independence, sovereignty, territorial integrity and security of non-aligned countries. Principles that the Communist Party of Malta embraces ".
