The Communist and Workers' Parties listed below issued the following joint statement for solidarity with the working people of Syria and their vanguard communist parties.

"For the past eight years, the people of Syria have defended their motherland, decisively and heroically. They have manifested a remarkable and honourable resistance, that hasn’t ceased for one moment in these years, despite the unmeasurable suffering they have been dragged into. It has already had its place in the great history of humanity. 

CODEPINK is appalled at President Trump’s announcement that the U.S. will be unilaterally and falsely declaring the occupied Golan Heights to be Israeli territory. On Thursday, March 21, Trump tweeted, “After 52 years it is time for the United States to fully recognize Israel’s Sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is of critical strategic and security importance to the State of Israel and Regional Stability!”

The Golan Heights is internationally recognized as being Syrian land despite having been illegally occupied by Israel since 1967 and formally annexed in 1981.

On December 21, the Party for Socialism and Liberation (PSL) issued a statement on the decision to remove 2,000 U.S. troops from Syria. Not satisfied with this decision, the Party calls for the extension of this decision to include the over 5,000 estimated "contractors" in Syria.

The Syrian CP issued a statement on the invasion of Syrian soil by foreign forces and warned against the conspiracies of imperialists towards the Kurdish people.

The statement issued on 7 December appealed to the patriots of the Syrian homeland to challange imperialism and Zionism. Reminding that Syria has been subjected to Zionist wars for years to undermine Syrian national steadfastness, the statement pointed out that the current imperialist aggression seeks to maintain US influence through the military bases in the east of the Euphrates in violation of Syria’s ‘independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity’. ‘The abominable Turkish occupation is also being legitimizing the dark reactionary stronghold on the valuable parts of the land of our homeland in the north of Aleppo’ said the statement.

Upon the initiative of the World Federation of Democratic Youth (WFDY) and the World Peace Council (WPC), 92 representatives of members and friends of WPC and WFDY gathered in the Syrian capital Damascus for a mission of Solidarity with the Syrian people and Youth from 29-31 October 2018. The participants of the mission representing 55 Organisations from 37 countries held on 30th October an International Conference at Damascus University with the attendance of 400 Syrian Youth and Students and concluded with the following resolution:

We salute the brave people, youth and students of Syria and express our full-hearted solidarity for the suffering and hardships of the more than 7 years, during which Syria faced an unprecedented and coordinated imperialist aggression, carried out by the USA, NATO, the EU, along with Turkey, the Zionist state of Israel and the reactionary Gulf monarchies, having thousands of armed extremist mercenaries as tools for the destruction and devastation of the country.

The Central Committee of the Syrian Communist Party (SCP) held its periodical meeting on August 3 under the chairmanship of Secretary-General Ammar Bagdache and issued a communiqué. The CC stressed the achievements of the Syrian armed forces which have liberated large areas, including all positions surrounding the capital, Damascus.

Promoting the steadfastness of the resisting people and struggling communists in the occupied areas, the communiqué pointed out the growing popular discontent among masses and indicated practices of the Turkish authorities like demographic change, displacement and imposition of the currency of the occupying power, which are practices prohibited by international treaties. It was also added that American flags were set on fire on many occasions as an expression against American colonists and organizations who cooperate with them.

Yesterday, July 4, 2018, the negotiations for the resolution of conflicts in southern Syria ceased. The negotiations were a COMPLETE FAILURE. Today, July 5, the Security Council of the UN holds its extraordinary session. The hypocrisy triumphs again! All claim that they are interested in the establishment of “peace”, “democracy”, “freedoms” etc. For 8 years, intra-imperialist antagonisms have been increasing in the South-East Mediterranean, the Gulf region and the Middle East. Strong actors claim to get their own part in Syria, Iraq and North Africa, Lebanon, Iran, Yemen and everywhere.
