Pyongyang, October 17 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA Saturday as regards the hostile forces' moves to bring up an anti-DPRK "human rights resolution" for discussion at the UN:
Under the manipulation of the U.S. the EU and Japan are again
holding negotiations to prepare a draft in a bid to get an anti-DPRK
"human rights resolution" adopted at the 70th UN General Assembly.
This is a mean plot of the U.S. and its followers to incite another confrontation with the DPRK at the UN.
The U.S. is the world's worst human rights abuser and tundra of
human rights and the criminal state to be dealt with at the UN without
The U.S. is perpetrating without hesitation human rights abuses in
every part of the world such as aggression, war and man-killing,
mercilessly trampling down the right to existence and vital rights.
It was none other than the U.S. that drove a tank over schoolgirls
to death in south Korea. It deliberately dropped bombs over a hospital,
killing many patients including children, not content with massacring
innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan. It was again the U.S. which set
up secret prisons in other countries and resorted to medieval torture
which made even brutes blush.
Racial discrimination and policemen's killing of blacks are a
commonplace in the U.S. and horrible gun-related crimes are taking place
everyday, making people tremble with fear of death.
The same is the case with the EU very talkative about human rights protection and humanitarianism.
It is Europe where a serious human tragedy is taking place as no
proper measures are taken for refugees coming in groups to it from the
Mideast in quest of means of living. Refugees are handled like luggage
to be suffocated to death en masse.
But the EU is keeping mum about the U.S. aggression and human rights abuses which spawned the refugee issue.
As seen above, the EU, failing to mind its own business, is
groundlessly finding fault with the DPRK over its "human rights issue"
in pursuance of the U.S. policy.
The DPRK has shown its utmost good faith in order to have dialogue
and cooperation in the field of human rights. It invited the EU
representative for human rights and the UN high commissioner for human
But the EU turned down even an offer of the DPRK to arrange its
meeting with families of "defectors from the north" in question and
unilaterally canceled the representative's visit to the DPRK which had
already been agreed upon.
It is busy with the moves to adopt the anti-DPRK resolution which
have lasted for more than 10 years, peddling a "report" peppered with
The EU is depending on the false document cooked up by the hostile
forces while turning a blind eye to the reality. Its attitude is the
height of hypocrisy and far-fetched assertions.
Japan is taking the lead in the "human rights racket" against the
DPRK. It is persistently instigating the EU to tarnish the image of the
DPRK in a foolish bid to cover its past crimes against humanity and gain
The EU and Japan should give up the above-said attempt at once and
opt to handle the existing hideous human rights issues of the West
including the U.S. human rights abuses and the refugee crisis in Europe.
It is absolutely unpardonable that the arch criminals abusing the
human rights are taking issue with the DPRK like a thief crying "Stop
The current UN General Assembly will turn into the platform on which
all peace-loving countries will curse and denounce the real human
rights abusers including the U.S.
The DPRK will foil the hostile forces' reckless "human rights" hysteria against it with the toughest counteraction. -0-
