Malta involved in USS Cole Mission

Zminijietna - Voice of the Left said that the Maltese Government should clarify the  foreign news from ‘The Australian’ newspaper which stated that USS Cole warship “started patrolling international waters just over the horizon from the Lebanese coastline after steaming from Malta”. ‘USA Today’ newspaper claimed that this is “a show of strength during a period of tensions with Syria and political uncertainty in Lebanon”.
 
Zminijietna -Voice of the Left said that as neutral country, Malta should not take the side of US imperialist interests. “The disaster caused in Iraq should have taught us a lesson on US foreign policy. The US should stop interfering in the internal matters of sovereign countries. It is the people of each country who should decide their future”, said Zminijietna.


“Malta should promote peace in the Mediterranean region, and not be accomplice to US attempts at dominance. We therefore demand that the Maltese Government clarifies whether it was informed that USS Cole was on its way to Lebanon, and whether the Maltese Government can justify its behaviour as being in line with the constitution”.

Malta involuta f’missjoni tal-USS Cole

Zminijietna – Lehen ix-Xellug qalet li l-Gvern Malti ghandu jikkjarifika l-ahbarijiet mill-gazzetta internazzonali ‘The Australian’ li qalet li l-bastiment militari USS Cole beda jbahhar f’ibhra internazzjonali vicin tal-Lebanon wara li kien f’Malta. Il-gazzetta ‘USA Today’ qalet li dan huwa turija tas-sahha f’perjodu ta’ tensjoni mas-Syria u ta’ incertezza politika fil-Lebanon.

Zminijietna – Lehen ix-Xellug qalet li bhala pajjiz newtrali, Malta m’ghandhiex tiehu l-pozizzjoni ta’ l-interessi imperjalisti ta’ l-iStati Uniti ta’ l-Amerika. “Id-dizastru li gie kkawzat fl-Iraq suppost taghna taghlima dwar il-politika barranija ta’ l-Amerika. L-Istati Uniti ghandha tieqaf tindhal f’affarijiet interni ta’ pajjizi sovrani. Il-popli ta’ kull pajjiz ghandhom jiddeciedu il-futur taghhom”, tenniet Zminijietna.

“Malta ghandha tippromwovi l-paci fil-Mediterran, u mhux tkun komplici  f’attentati Amerikani ghad-dominanza. Ghalhekk nitolbu lill-Gvern Malti biex jikkjarifika jekk kienx infurmat li l-USS Cole kien sejjer lejn il-Lebanon, u jekk il-Gvern Malti jistax jiggustifika l-agir tieghu bhala wiehed konformi mal-kostituzzjoni”.
