Pyongyang, February 26 (KCNA) -- The DPRK Association for Human Rights Studies in an indictment issued on Feb. 23 disclosed that the U.S. and western countries wantonly violated rights of the peoples of other countries under the signboard of "human rights" and "democracy."
According to it, the U.S. set up "cultural centers" and "information services" in more than a hundred countries of the world to systematically provide them with periodicals spreading the reactionary idea and American-style way of life.
Radio Free Asia set up in January, 1994 has broadcast in various national languages for 15 hours every day, 80 percent of its programs are aimed at spreading Yankee-style culture and slinging mud at the ideologies and culture of other countries.
Some countries of the EU and Japan have massively produced and spread reactionary publications slandering the ideologies and social systems of other countries and benumbing the sound thinking of people.
The U.S. and western countries put under their control the majority of international information exchange after seizing the three fourths of the world websites. They are making desperate efforts to quell the voices representing progress and justice and embellish their unpopular social system against human rights.
They prodded dissident forces in relevant countries into fostering social confusion and chaos and put pressure on their governments for taking actions against them under the pretext of "human rights abuses." In the long run, they staged military intervention in sovereign countries under the excuse of "protection of human rights."
The U.S. had committed over 900 cases of operations for assassination and terror against prominent political figures and leading government officials of various countries from 1961 to 1976.
Its scenario to overturn the regimes of sovereign states still goes on in such anti-imperialist independent countries as Bolivia, Venezuela and Ecuador.
The U.S. and western countries are wantonly violating international laws adopted to prevent genocide and punish those involved in it under the signboard of "anti-terrorism war."
About 14 000-110 000 innocent people died every year from 2001 to 2011 due to the U.S.-led "anti-terrorism war."
For just 5 years since the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March, 2003, 1 205 000 Iraqi people were killed, a million missing, and nearly half of them are children.
According to a UN report on February 4, 2012, civilians killed due to GIs' operations for "combating terrorism" in Afghanistan numbered 3 021 in 2011 alone. 484 innocent civilians including 168 children were killed by GIs' attacks in Pakistan from 2004 to June, 2012.
U.S. forces mounted attacks on dwelling houses, hospitals and storehouses of RC organizations, high-voltage cable for cities, etc., which are banned even in wartime by international law, destroying and plundering them.
GIs massively used chemical and germ weapons during the Korean War in the 1950s, massacring innocent Koreans, and used even depleted uranium bombs during the Gulf and Balkan wars in the 1990s.
They used horrible chemical weapons destroying even human bones, cruelly massacring civilians during the Iraqi War.
The U.S. and western countries are committing more serious human rights abuses in secret prisons overseas in wanton violation of international law.
Pursuant to the regulations for operating overseas secret jails set by the U.S. administration 6 days after the September 11 incident, CIA established and operated secret prisons in various parts of the world including Poland, Afghanistan, Iraq and Thailand.
U.S. Congress in its report on Dec. 9, 2014 opened to public that CIA had resorted to monstrous tortures baffling human imagination against hundreds of prisoners for several years.
Britain and 20 other western countries offered secret prisons and interrogation centers to CIA, thus closely cooperating with it in tortures.
According to the British Guardian in October 2013, the U.S. National Security Bureau wiretapped phone messages of 35 foreign heads of state in conspiracy with the White House, Department of State and Pentagon.
The Washington Post disclosed on December 5, 2013 that the U.S. gathered 5 billion pieces of information about common citizens in various parts of the world by tracking their mobile phones.
Even western countries were no exception in wiretapping of phone messages.
According to information, 360 million pieces of phone messages were eavesdropped in Germany, 70 million in France and 46 million in Italy by the U.S.
The U.S. large-scale phone wire-tapping operations conducted worldwide for the last several decades are, indeed, u
