Pyongyang, December 10 (KCNA) -- It is 68 years since the World Declaration of Human Rights was adopted in reflection of the desire of mankind, but even at this moment a grave situation of human rights violation is prevailing on the earth.
Recently, the U.S. and its vassal forces again railroaded the
anti-DPRK "human rights resolution" full of lies and fabrications
through the Third Committee of the 71st UN General Assembly.
Obama and the state secretary and other outgoing authorities of the
U.S. are blustering that it is necessary to leave no means untried to
settle "north Korea's human rights issue" and the U.S. Congress is
claiming that it will extend the application of the "North Korean Human
Rights Act" till 2022.
This represents an insult to the genuine human rights and the worst violation of the sovereignty of a nation.
Each country and nation has its own history and custom and way of
life. Therefore, the system of ensuring human rights should be
established as required by their people.
In particular, human rights precisely mean sovereignty and the

massacres and other unethical crimes unprecedented in the history of
mankind under the pretexts of "color revolution," "anti-terrorism war,"
The rights of many countries and nations are not "protected" but
violated in cold blood owing to the U.S.-led Afghan, Iraqi and Libyan
wars and its political and military interference in the internal affairs
of Syria and indiscriminate air raids on peaceable inhabitants and
mediaeval torturein overseas secret prisons.
The U.S. is meddling in the internal affairs of other countries and
nations and infringing upon their sovereignty, styling itself "world
human rights judge". This is nothing but the worst challenge to the
human rights and their violation.
The U.S. is the worst human rights abuser in the world as the world community comments.
The final document of the 17th non-aligned summit and the
declaration of the 77-group ministerial meeting held during the 71st UN
General Assembly reflect a stern judgment passed on the American-style
"human rights standards" and the will to champion the genuine human
