Rodong Sinmun Raps S. Korean Authorities' Anti-DPRK "Human Rights" Campaign
Pyongyang, April 23 (KCNA) -- The south Korean ruling forces are mulling setting up in south Korea the UN "Office for Human Rights in North" tasked to "monitor and record human rights performance". The south Korean authorities clarified the stand that south Korea would "positively examine" this issue in case the UN makes a "request".

Rodong Sinmun Wednesday in a commentary says that this clearly proves what a reckless phase their "human rights" campaign against the DPRK has reached. It goes on:

The south Korean authorities' move to set up the office is an unpardonable challenge to the dignity and sovereignty of the DPRK and an extreme politically-motivated provocative act of pushing the north-south relations to a more grave phase.

It is ridiculous, indeed, for the puppet forces to talk about any "universal value" and the like over the issue of setting up the office.

What the puppet authorities seek is to kick off a frantic racket for confrontation of social systems, trumpeting about "human rights" in a bid to hurt the dignified socialist system in the DPRK and the single-minded unity of all its service personnel and people.

Steeped in extreme bad blood and evil repugnancy towards their fellow countrymen, these puppet ruling forces regard the "human rights" campaign as a basic means for confrontation with the DPRK.

It is a scenario of the puppet group to set up the office in south Korea in a bid to build up world public opinion about the non-existent "human rights issue in the north", zealously incite hostility toward the DPRK and boost cooperation with foreign forces in the "human rights" campaign against fellow countrymen.

The south Korean authorities would be well advised to stop acting rashly, bearing in mind that their anti-DPRK "human rights" campaign is as foolish an act as precipitating their final ruin.
