Pyongyang, May 1 (KCNA) -- The "Commission for Human Rights in North Korea", a non-governmental human rights body of the U.S., released a report on April 27.
The report claimed that the DPRK is backing
and dealing with the terrorist organizations and "states sponsoring
terrorism" in Mideast and is involved in direct terrorism such as cyber
attack on the Sony Pictures Entertainment of the U.S. It urged the U.S.
administration and Congress to re-list the DPRK as a "sponsor of
The report is no more than a conspiratorial document
that does not deserve even a passing note as it was cooked up by a U.S.
individual organization which is unknown to the international community
in a bid to gain its political clout. But the DPRK cannot but take a
serious note of the U.S. moves in the light of the fact that the
commission echoed the assertion of the U.S. hard-line conservative
forces calling for ratcheting up pressure upon the DPRK now that the
relations between it and the U.S. are at rock bottom.
behind the moves of the "Commission for Human Rights in North Korea" to
make public the report and build up public opinion on it is its sinister
purpose to tarnish the image of the DPRK by branding it as a "sponsor
of terrorism" now that the U.S. has failed to "demonize" it over the
"nuclear and human rights issue".
Whenever the DPRK-U.S.
relations and the situation got strained, the Republican Party and other
conservative forces in the U.S. desperately called for re-listing the
DPRK as a "sponsor of terrorism" since its removal from the list of
"sponsors of terrorism" in 2008.
Notably, the present chief
executive of the U.S. issued a "presidential executive order" to slap
"additional sanctions" against the DPRK in the wake of the case of cyber
attack on the Sony Pictures Entertainment. Pursuant to the order,
heavyweights of the political camp and the military of the U.S. vied
with each other to cry out for re-listing the DPRK as a "sponsor of
terrorism" and imposing "toughest additional sanctions" upon it,
revealing the sinister design to isolate and stifle it.
should not be overlooked that against this backdrop, the "Commission for
Human Rights in North Korea" opened to public a document peppered with
lies and deception.
The "Commission" made up of scholars, former
officials of the U.S. government and others who claim to be "experts on
Korean affairs" has been keen on smear campaign against the DPRK. By
doing so, it seeks to please the U.S. ruling forces and gain its
political clout in a bid to prolong its remaining days.
its appearance, it has insisted on linking the food shortage in the DPRK
with "lack of elementary human rights" and compiled all nonsensical
talks about its social system to meet the political interests of the
U.S. conservative forces before floating wild rumors.
plot-breeding body produced a conspiratorial document as part of its
desperate campaign to label the DPRK a "sponsor of terrorism." This is
no more than the last-ditch effort of those hell-bent on the smear
campaign against the DPRK.
Explicitly speaking, the above-said
story about "the DPRK's sponsoring of terrorism" is another unpardonable
politically-motivated provocation against the DPRK.
government has made clear its principled stand to oppose all forms of
terrorism and any support to it before the international community and
consistently maintained it.
It held negotiations with the U.S.
over the issue of terrorism several times in the past and released a
joint statement clarifying its stand toward terrorism.
being a hard reality, the dishonest forces of the U.S. let a
plot-breeding body noisily trumpet about someone's "sponsoring of
terrorism," which can never work on anyone as it is totally baseless.
The U.S. is the kingpin of international terrorism and a typical "sponsor of terrorism."
The U.S. history is just the history of hideous terrorism.
When looking back upon the history of the founding of the U.S. and
its history of bloody "independence war" and its course of battles
fought to expand colonies overseas, the U.S. is precisely a terrorism
sponsor regarding massacre, destruction and plunder as its only mode of
It is none other than the U.S. which is now fanning up the whirlwind of terrorism in various parts of the world.
It has openly perpetrated terrorism to bring down the governments
of the countries incurring its displeasure by force of arms and
politically-motivated state-sponsored terrorism against them by
employing conspiratorial methods.
It has pursued undisguised
terrorism aimed at murder, aggression, war and horror in the
international arena. It is also a "sponsor of terrorism" that has
wantonly violated the UNSC resolution No. 137 that was adopted on Sept.
It has provided terrorists with shelter after painting
them as "political exiles" and "dissidents" in return for serving its
purpose of "spreading U.S.-style freedom and democracy".
U.S. is kicking up such smear campaign by setting in motion the
plot-breeding body made up of servants of the U.S. dishonest forces.
This will only touch off criticism and derision of the international
It is, indeed, absurd and ridiculous for those forces to label the DPRK a "sponsor of terrorism." -0-
