Rodong Sinmun Accuses U.S. of Abusing Humanitarianism for Espionage against DPRK

    Pyongyang, November 4 (KCNA) -- Some days ago, the U.S. whistleblower website The Intercept disclosed the fact that the U.S. Defence Department has moved to use the "Humanitarian International Service Group" (HISG) for espionage against the DPRK under the veil of Christian humanitarian cooperation group.
    It was said that Pentagon attempted to slip transistors and other wireless information-gathering instruments into the things such as garment that the HISG sent to the DPRK from 2004 to 2012.
    Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says in a commentary that this is aimed at destabilizing the DPRK and spying on such important military secrets as information about its nuclear activities.
    This doesn't conform to the humanitarian mission and goal at all and it diametrically runs counter to the international principle, the commentary notes, and goes on:
    The U.S. is free to abuse even humanitarianism for espionage though it is apt to talk volumes about "inviolability." This act against humanitarianism and human rights patently proves that its hostile policy towards the DPRK has gone beyond the tolerance limit.
    Not a few Americans were arrested while perpetrating espionage and other hostile acts after entering the DPRK under the guise of "charitable persons" or "tourists" in the past.
    All of them were sentenced to relevant penalties by the law of the DPRK and the U.S. suffered disgrace over each issue of their release.
    The U.S. should bear in mind that its mean and despicable espionage plans and operations can never escape the sharp watch of the relevant organs of the DPRK.
    The U.S. would be well advised to immediately stop the espionage against the DPRK through the humanitarian cooperation group if it does not wish to see more Americans serve prison terms here. -0-
