KCNA Commentary Slams S. Korean Authorities for Chilling Atmosphere of Dialogue
Pyongyang, August 27 (KCNA) -- The south Korean authorities are persistently kicking up an anti-DPRK "human rights" campaign.

Recently the south Korean conservative regime brought into south Korea what it called fact-finding group of the UN Committee for Investigation into Human Rights in the North. It staged such charade as a "public hearing" to hear testimonies from human scum.

"Prime Minister" Jong Hong Won, when meeting the riff-raffs of the group, bragged that the south is promoting the institution of the "law on human rights in the north", one for confrontation with the DPRK, while talking about "universal value of humankind".

There continue operations to allure and abduct fellow countrymen in the north through a third country under the patronage and manipulation of the south Korean authorities.

These moves cannot be construed otherwise than reckless acts of chilling the hard-won atmosphere of dialogue between the north and the south as they are a revelation of extreme confrontation with fellow countrymen.

As known, an atmosphere of dialogue and cooperation is being created step by step thanks to the positive measures, magnanimity and sincere efforts of the DPRK on the Korean Peninsula fraught with escalating tensions. Such atmosphere will grow stronger when respect and understanding of the dialogue partner are promoted and hostile acts come to a stop.

If one party does not recognize the ideology and social system of the other party but persists in the hostile acts of slandering and hurting it, not only the inter-Korean relations but the situation on the Korean Peninsula will get further strained.

The issue of the "human rights" touted by the south Korean authorities is a trite method used by them whenever they are driven into a tight corner as it is a plot hatched by the U.S. and other hostile forces to justify their moves for hurting and stifling a sovereign state.

The so-called "human rights" issues touted by the hostile forces directly or through their local stooges are being censured by countries of relevant countries and their people and in their own countries as they are all aimed to openly interfere in the ideologies and social systems of sovereign states and change their regimes.

The "law on human rights in the north" which the conservative regime is working so hard to adopt is peppered with poisonous provisions to reject the regime of the DPRK and defame and topple it.

Such anti-DPRK "human rights" campaign kicked up again by the south Korean authorities contrary to the present atmosphere of dialogue is nothing but an artifice to quell the above-said atmosphere, displeased with it.

They are abusing good faith and magnanimity of the DPRK for escalating confrontation and defaming its social system. It is an open challenge to all the Koreans and the international community desirous of dialogue and cooperation between the north and the south, detente and peace on the Korean Peninsula.

The south Korean authorities are now becoming more talkative about "confidence" between the north and the south. The noisier they become in their "human rights" campaign full of distrust and hostility toward fellow countrymen, the more saliently it will reveal their hypocritical nature.

History and the nation will never remain a passive onlooker to any act of chilling the atmosphere of peace and dialogue on the Korean Peninsula.
