NEW DELHI MAY 25. The Left parties have called on the Government not to send troops to Iraq.
A joint statement issued by the CPI (M), CPI, RSP and Forward Bloc, said ``there should be no involvement at the military level with the occupation regime ''.
The joint statement was signed by the leaders of the four parties Harkishen Singh Surjeet, (CPI-M), A. B. Bardhan (CPI), Mr Debabrata Biswa, Forward Bloc, and Abani Roy (RSP).
The statement said sending troops to serve the needs of the US occupation forces will be totally against the all parties stand reflected in the statement adopted in the last session of Parliament.
According to the signatories, since there is no UN sponsored administration in Iraq, there will be no UN peace keeping force.
``The US military will continue as the occupying force and any troops sent there will work under the US command,'' they said.
The signatories also made the point that in the name of ``stabilisation force,'' the United States wants troops from allied countries to share the burden of pacifying Iraq, and quell any opposition to illegal occupation.
