Pyongyang, July 16 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK Wednesday made public a statement denouncing the U.S. for escalating anti-DPRK campaign, talking about new "sanctions" against it over the non-existent "human rights" issue.
On July 8 the special representative for North Korea policy of the U.S. Department of State at a seminar organized by the Heritage Foundation of the U.S. blustered that "international concern is growing strong after serious human rights abuses in north Korea were proved" by a "report on the Commission of Inquiry" (CI) on the human rights situation in the DPRK and the U.S. is "examining necessary measures including sanctions".
The U.S. is, at the same time, spreading the "report" of the CI no more than waste paper as it is peppered with false testimonies through all its reptile media, persistently fanning up the hostile atmosphere towards the DPRK.
The campaign for new "sanctions" against the DPRK the U.S. contemplating on the basis of the "report" has nothing in common with genuine protection of human rights, the statement said, and went on:
It is aimed at tarnishing the image of the DPRK and bringing down its system in every despicable means and method.
It is an intolerable mockery and insult to human rights to vilify the most advantageous socialist system in the DPRK where the people freely exercise their independent rights and have their beautiful dreams and ideals realized after becoming masters.
The U.S. is the worst abuser of human rights and a criminal state which should be forced to sit in the dock at the international human rights tribunal. It has imposed immeasurable misfortune and pain upon the innocent civilians while resorting to aggression and interference in all parts of the world. It has systematically perpetrated illegal wire-tapping and watch over people of not only the U.S. but also other countries and its policemen are shooting black people to death in broad daylight.
The U.S. is keen to ratchet up "sanctions" against the DPRK over the "human rights issue" and bring down its system through them. This is nothing but an anachronistic daydream of saving its hostile policy towards the DPRK from total bankruptcy.
The pressure being persistently increased by the U.S. upon the DPRK out of its inveterate repugnancy toward the DPRK would more saliently reveal the reactionary nature of its hostile policy toward the DPRK and help further harden its will to take tough counter-action against it.
The DPRK will value the Korean-style socialist system, the cradle of genuine human rights chosen by the people, and further develop it with pride no matter what others may say. -0-
