Japanese Asahi Shimbun Accused of Hurting Dignity of Supreme Leadership of DPRK
Tokyo, March 20 (KNS-KCNA) -- Representatives of the Central Standing Committee of the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon) on March 18 lodged a strong protest with the Japanese Asahi Shimbun against carrying an article hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK.

That day they visited the head office of the Asahi Shimbun in Tokyo where they accused the paper of conducting a smear campaign seriously hurting the dignity of the supreme leadership of the DPRK by setting in motion human scum despite the repeated protests from the DPRK.

The recent article is an unpardonable sheer fabrication pursuant to the anti-DPRK human rights racket kicked up by the U.S. and its allies, they charged, strongly demanding the newspaper immediately make an apology and correct the article.

Chongryon and Koreans in Japan are becoming increasingly vocal in their protest and condemnation of the crimes committed by Japanese conservative media.
