Nepal's Maoists chairman Prachanda has criticised India and Sri Lanka for allegedly "suppressing" the extremist outfits in the two countries and said his party would renew its ties with the international fraternal groups.
"The military action of Sri Lankan government against the armed group LTTE and Indian government's armed action against Indian Maoists in Lalgarh are deplorable acts," he said while addressing media persons here yesterday.
The Maoists' have also decided to strengthen their ties with all the Marxists, Leninist and Maoist parties of the world.
"It is our policy to support any movement launched by the Maoists anywhere in the world and we oppose suppression of such struggle by the government," Maoist central secretariat member Narayankaji Shrestha 'Prakash' said.
The Maoists' central committee meeting has decided to renew its fraternal relations with international organizations having similar ideologies such as RIM (Revolutionary International Movement) and COMPOSA (Coordination Committee of Maoist Parties and Organisations of South Asia) and other international communist bodies.
"We will not tolerate any action by the state against our international fraternal organisations," Maoists' Foreign Affairs Department chief C P Gajurel said.
