Communist Party of Greece (KKE) leader Aleka Papariga met on Friday with visiting Syrian Communist party central committee secretary general Dr. Ammar Bagdache, who is in Athens at the invitation of the KKE, and discussed the situation in the region following the uprisings in northern Africa.

According to a KKE announcement, the two parties reiterated their support for the struggling peoples and condemned the imperialist interventions against the peoples of the region, adding that the interventions were being prepared under various pretexts.

In that direction, they criticised "the imperialist planning for a military intervention in Libya".
