Condolence message from the Iraqi Communist Party
To Die Linke on the passing away of Lothar Bisky
To: The Executive Committee & International Department
Die Linke (The Left) - Germany
The Central Committee of the Iraqi Communist Party conveys to you its deepest condolences for the passing away of Comrade Lothar Bisky, who was a prominent leading figure of your fraternal party, the co-founder of the Party of European Left and former leader of the European United Left bloc in the European Parliament. He will always be remembered for his valuable and inspiring contribution to consolidating the German and European Left, developing new left alternatives for social transformation, democracy and socialism.
Iraqi Communists recall Comrade Bisky’s stance of solidarity with their party and Iraqi democratic forces against dictatorship and war, and his contribution to strengthening the bilateral relations between our two parties.
We share your deep pain and sorrow for this big loss. Please convey our fraternal condolences to the family of late Comrade Bisky, and to all the members and leadership of Die Linke.
