DPRK Foreign Ministry Spokesman Blasts U.S. Secretary of State's Reckless Remarks
| Pyongyang, June 17 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Sunday gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA as regards the reckless remarks made by the U.S. secretary of State against the DPRK:
U.S. authorities are imprudently talking about "human rights record" in the DPRK and "the issue of its people's living" these days whenever an opportunity presents itself. Typical of them is U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
It was the U.S. that has long antagonized and threatened the DPRK, compelling it to build defence capability to cope with it. It is, however, urging the DPRK to give priority to "people's living." This is a hypocritical act of causing illness and then administering medicine.
It was an undying historical feat that leader Kim Jong Il protected the dignity and supreme interests of the country and nation and built the DPRK into a self-defensive military power which no aggressor forces dare to provoke. This serves as an eternal foundation for accelerating the building of a thriving socialist nation.
The dear respected Kim Jong Un has already set forth a goal of Korean-style development and strategies and tactics for enabling the Korean people to live well with nothing to desire more in the world. He is now wisely leading the general advance of the Korean people for economic construction and improving the standard of people's living.
The world witnessed the events in December last year when the Korean people bitterly grieved over the demise of leader Kim Jong Il, the auspicious events in April this year when the country shook with their cheers and the spectacular celebrations of the anniversary of the Korean Children's Union on June 6 this year. These events clearly showed how foolish and ridiculous the U.S. was in its attempt to meddle in the internal affairs of the DPRK over its "human rights issue" and "people's living" and hurt its single-minded unity.
The DPRK will make sustained efforts to bolster up its nuclear deterrent to guarantee the peace and security of the country and the nation as long as the U.S. persistently antagonizes it, in actuality, while saying that it has no hostile intent on the former.
The munitions industry of the DPRK has now a foundation and capacity to steadily boost its nuclear deterrent by itself without letting its people fasten their belts any longer.
It is the U.S. where people's livelihood and vital rights present themselves as serious problems, in fact, as 99 percent of its population is exploited by those who account for just one percent.
Hillary would be well advised to pay more attention to the issues of economic crisis and huge hordes of jobless people, which have become so serious that they may dash the hope of the administration of the Democratic Party for stay in power.
The passage of time will prove that the Korean-style socialist system chosen by the people of the DPRK will prosper fast unlike the American-style capitalist system.
