FM Spokesman Blasts US Human Rights Report
| Pyongyang, May 29 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued the following statement on Tuesday denouncing the U.S. for malignantly slandering the DPRK and other independent countries opposed to its hegemony in the "2011 human rights report" on May 24:
It is the inveterate bad habit of the U.S. to regard the human rights issue as a political tool for realizing its strategy for world domination. The U.S. considers any country kowtowing to it as "guiltless" but declares any country opposed to its domination "guilty" without verifying truth about human rights. This is the real picture of the trial of human rights issues repeated by the U.S. every year.
The DPRK is always mentioned in this report as it is the state which the U.S. antagonizes more than any other country. The U.S. unchanged human rights racket against the DPRK is, in essence, a product of the U.S. hostile policy toward the DPRK to isolate and stifle at any cost its socialist system chosen by the Korean people themselves and, at the same time, a hideous human rights abuse denying the choice by the people of a country.
We bitterly condemn the despicable human rights report worked out by the U.S. styling itself the so-called "law-governed state" and "an intelligence-gathering power" on the basis of "rumors" concocted by a handful of traitors and criminals to earn living expenses after running away from their country and families.
It is quite natural that many countries of the world are scathingly denouncing the U.S. human rights report as the height of politicization of human rights and double standards and a dustbin of all distortions and fabrications. By nature, the U.S. has resorted to all military threats and nuclear blackmail against the DPRK in a bid to stifle it by force of arms for decades. But they compelled the DPRK to have access to nuclear weapons and bolster up its nuclear deterrent.
The U.S. is raising "human rights issue" and "issue of people's living" these days. High-ranking officials of the U.S. are letting loose a spate of remarks in an attempt to create an impression that they are interested in the living of the people of the DPRK but it is the U.S. which has most persistently and desperately obstructed its efforts to develop economy and improve the standard of people's living.
On April 15 the dear respected Kim Jong Un solemnly declared at home and abroad that it is the steadfast resolution of the Workers' Party of Korea not to let the Korean people tighten their belts again but make them fully enjoy wealth and happiness under socialism. The next day the U.S. took such criminal action as slapping economic sanctions against the DPRK again by taking issue with its satellite launch for peaceful purposes.
It is the gangster-like logic of the U.S. that those countries which it antagonizes should not be allowed to increase defence capabilities and to this end they should be barred from having access to technology or materials for dual use even if they hinder peaceful economic development.
The U.S. is paying lip-service to the "people's living" while hindering the DPRK's economic development in actuality. This is part of the U.S. foolish psychological operation to make a crack in the single-minded unity of the DPRK and destabilize it.
The U.S. has no moral qualification to raise a human rights issue or an issue of people's living to the DPRK as long as the U.S. sticks to its anachronistic hostile policy towards the DPRK.
The U.S. brutally suppressed those toiling masses who staged Occupy the Wall Street demos and anti-war demos in protest against the capitalist system under which the rich gets richer and the poor poorer and the war policy of the authorities and massacred hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians in different parts of the world through aggression and interference. This world's worst human rights abuser the U.S. is behaving as if it were "a human rights judge." This reminds one of a thief shouting "Stop the thief!"
If the U.S. continues vulgarizing the human rights issue as a political lever for achieving its selfish purpose as now, it will never be able to escape international isolation as shown by the widespread international criticism of this report.
