Once again, the Swiss Federal Council is trying to align Switzerland closer to NATO and thus undermines Switzerland's neutrality. For years, the Swiss government has been integrating Switzerland step by step into the NATO bloc. Recent examples are Switzerland's joining the NATO Sky Shield project and the announcement of joint military exercises. Plans have now been announced for NATO to open a liaison office in Geneva. According to statements from the Swiss Foreign Ministry, the federal authorities are taking precautions “to welcome NATO to Switzerland”.

The World Peace Council expresses its indignation and vehement condemnation about the
recent attack on the hospital in the Palestinian Gaza Strip where many hundreds of civilians died
and many more are injured. This Israeli attack constitutes an unprecedented atrocity of the
occupation regime of Israel against the Palestinian people who are helplessly seeking shelter and
treatment at the hospital. This aggression proves how ambiguous and hypocritical the claim of the
Israeli government is about their right to “self defense”.

The Cyprus Peace Council (CPC) has been following with feelings of deep concern the escalation of the hostilities and bloodshed in Israel and the Palestinian Gaza Strip, where so far hundreds of civilian casualties have been counted on both sides. The attacks on civilians, which constitute serious violations of international law, are reprehensible and lead to a greater impasse for peace in the region, with the danger of the conflict becoming a regional one.

Today, September 26th, marks the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons.

In the text of Resolution No. 68/32 of the United Nations General Assembly, it can be read: “Declares 26 September the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons devoted to furthering this objective, including through enhancing public awareness and education about the threat posed to humanity by nuclear weapons and the necessity for their total elimination in order to mobilize international efforts towards achieving the common goal of a nuclear-weapon free world”.

As a follow-up to the resolutions of the Assembly of the World Peace Council (WPC), held in Vietnam in November 2022, September 19-20 of this year, the Regional Meeting for the Americas and the Caribbean of the World Peace Council was held in Pachuca Hidalgo, Mexico, convened by the Mexican Movement for Peace and Development (MOMPADE), the host organization, and by the Cuban Institute of Friendship with Peoples (ICAP), as regional coordinator.

On the occasion of the 50th. anniversary of the fascist military coup against the legitimate government of Chile led by President Salvador Allende, the Portuguese Council for Peace and Cooperation (CPPC) salutes the Chilean people who fought and resisted fascism,

On September 11, 1973, a violent and bloody coup d'état overthrew the Popular Unity government democratically elected by the Chilean people, putting an end to three years of deepening democracy, the rights of the Chilean people, and Chile's sovereignty.

The World Peace Council (WPC) strongly conmdens the recent arrest of
the leader of the Anti-fascist Committee of Ukraine, member of the WPC,
Georgi Buiko. This action of the authorities of the NATO backed
Kiev-regime is one more violation of every sense of democratic right of
political expression against an activist who is also member of the
leadership of the Communist Party of Ukraine and former MP.
