New Delhi: For the first time in India, Communist and workers leaders from across the world would meet here to debate the global crisis of capitalism and the struggles against it.

The three-day 11th International Meeting of Communist and Workers Parties, being jointly hosted by the CPI(M) and the CPI from November 22, would also discuss the alternative paths of developments and the role played by the communist and workers parties, Left sources said.

A global declaration would be adopted at the conference, which would also pass resolutions on major issues ranging from the global economic crisis and the "hegemonistic" role of the US imperialism in various parts of the world to climate change.

Over a hundred delegates from these parties are expected to attend the conference. They would include those from the United States, Canada, the UK, Greece, Sweden, Palestine, Lebanon, China, Pakistan, Latin American and African nations.

The 10th such meeting was held at Sao Paulo in Brazil in 2008, which was preceded by the 9th meeting at Minsk in Belarus and Moscow in 2007, at Lisbon in 2006 and at Athens in 2005, the sources said.

In 1993, the CPI(M) had organised an international seminar on the 'Contemporary World Situation and the validity of Marxism', which was attended by representatives of 21 communist and workers parties from across the globe, they added.
