As had been expected for months, Donald Trump, the US President, announced in a speech on Friday 13 October his administration’s new strategic approach towards the Islamic Republic of Iran. Although Donald Trump was expected to address the issue of Iran's compliance under the JCPOA nuclear deal - that was signed between Iran and the 5+1 countries in July 2015 - his words in fact comprehensively redefined the new strategy of the United States in terms of its future of relations with Iran, the balance of power in the Middle East, as well as how the United States will interact with the world including its European allies.
The Tudeh Party of Iran believes that global peace hinges on the efforts of all peace-loving and progressive forces across the world to work for the resolution of all conflicts and disputes through negotiation and within the framework of the UN Charter.
The first speech of US President Donald Trump at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday September 19, 2017, exhibited to the world’s public the deeply reactionary, interventionist, and warmongering nature of the US administration, and the grave risks that thus threaten world peace.
We condemn this attack on defenceless workers seeking their rights!
According to reports and footage published and verified, on Tuesday 19th of September employees of the Hepco Company - specialising in the production of heavy equipment and road building machinery - and Azarab Industries Company - specialising in the construction of power stations and refineries - both operating from the city of Arak in central Iran, were attacked by security forces and a special anti-riot police unit during their protest march in the city. The workers of the Hepco and Azarab factories have not received wages for months and no individual or organ has been held accountable for this. The workers of these two major workplaces are owed at least six months’ worth of wages and other work related benefits.
The Tudeh Party of Iran demands the immediate and unconditional release of all imprisoned militant social-political activists, workers, students, and women from the jails of the anti-people theocratic regime in Iran!

Workers and working people,

On the morning of Friday 7 April 2017 - the day before which the meeting of the UN Security Council had ended without a vote on the proposed draft resolutions before it, to examine the details surrounding the use of chemical weapons in the conflict between the Syrian army and armed terrorists in the town of Khan Sheykhun - the United States began a military attack on Syria. The Tudeh Party of Iran believes that the aggressive military attack by the US on Syria, under the pretext of responding to the suspicious yet indefensible chemical attack in Idlib – was contrary to all frameworks of international law.
