Pyongyang, February 23 (KCNA) -- The DPRK Association for Human Rights Studies issued an indictment on Feb. 23 disclosing the miserable human rights situation and human rights abuses by the U.S. and western countries which are styling themselves "human rights champions".
The indictment referred to the fact that the political freedom and
right, the most valuable right of the human being, are being seriously
violated in the U.S. and western countries.
The U.S. and western countries are mercilessly trampling down and
cracking down the freedom of the religion of other nations and are not
properly guaranteeing elementary human right to existence and
In the U.S. and western countries human rights to work are denied
and a lot of children are suffering from poverty, left without any state
and social care and protection and women are subject to all sorts of
insults and discriminations.
The U.S. and western countries are desperately spreading their
decadent and reactionary ideas and culture by using all media in
disregard of the requirements of the international law on human rights
calling for respecting the freedom of thinking and cultural diversity in
They are encroaching upon the essential right of human beings to
receive safe and trustworthy news by spreading misinformation.
The U.S. is patronizing the dissident organizations in other
countries and zealously egging them on to bring down their governments.

other countries to make the situation in the relevant countries unstable
and bring about regime changes by providing such bodies with funds,
The U.S. and western countries are wantonly violating the
international laws for preventing and punishing massacres under the
pretext of "anti-terrorism".
The U.S. has long shamelessly perpetrated such human rights abuses
as tapping not only phone messages in its country but those of heads of
governments of other countries.
Recalling that the world is now in the grip of the worst refugee
crisis in history, the indictment noted that this is an inevitable
product of the policies for domination, hegemony and interference
pursued by the U.S. and western countries for meeting their own avarice
The issue of refugees being spawned by the U.S. and western
countries is a human rights abuse, the indictment said, adding: To put
this crisis under control and ensure the rights of the refugees is the
obligation and duty of the U.S. and western countries under
However, they are evading their responsibilities for them and seriously violating the rights of the refugees.
Their hideous human rights abuses are now being institutionally
committed due to their government's policies and they can be settled
only when a genuine system for ensuring human rights is established.
The U.S. and western countries, tundras of the human rights and
cesspools of the human rights abuses, had better stop painting
themselves as "human rights champions" and talking about the human
rights situation in other countries and mind their own businesses. -0-
