KCNA Blasts U.S. Political Plot

Korean Central News Agency of DPRK

    Pyongyang, March 16 (KCNA) -- The U.S. Department of State in a recent "annual report on drug control" groundlessly charged that the DPRK considers drug smuggling as a "state policy." This is a base and despicable political plot of the U.S. to tarnish the international image of the DPRK at any cost and internationalize and legalize "sanctions" and "blockade" against it.
    Some time ago the Australian Court, handling the case of the DPRK trading cargo ship "Pongsu," admitted that "the state was not involved in it" and instructed the release of its crewmen for the lack of evidence.
    This suffices to clearly prove that the U.S. assertion that the DPRK conducts "drug smuggling" as a state policy is a whopping lie.
    Explicitly speaking, in the DPRK where the people are valued more than anything else the use of and deal in drug and its production are strictly banned by law as it renders people mentally deformed.
    The import of mental stimulant for scientific research is subject to a strict state control and legal order. The DPRK has long maintained successful contact and cooperation with the International Narcotic Control Board in this field.
    When discussing drug trafficking worldwide, the U.S. should be tried before any other country.
    As already known, the U.S. is beset with serious drug-related problems such as drug production, trafficking and use.
    In Washington D.C. only, more than 60 drug black markets are regularly operated and a great many drug smugglers are crossing borders.
    It is the U.S. where drug addiction resulted in the birth of many deformed babies and the appearance of disabled men and women.
    As the drug trafficking and use has become a social trend, juvenile drug users are reported to be more than 10.8 million.
    Though the U.S. is ill-famed for being a "kingpin of drug use", "den of drug-related criminals" and "drug-smuggling country," it is turning its face away from this evil but is finding fault with someone's non-existent drug smuggling. This can not but be an inveterate bad habit of those accustomed to speaking ill of others.
    What matters is why the U.S. made such ado about the DPRK's "drug issue" and "human rights issue" in its "annual report on drug control."
    Its ulterior aim is to float all sorts of misinformation about the DPRK in addition to the fiction of "suspicion of nuclear development" in a bid to invent pretexts to isolate and stifle it internationally and thus force Pyongyang to scrap its nuclear program first at any cost.
    The U.S. had better put under control the drug-related crimes that plague it before pulling up the DPRK while obstinately pursuing its anachronistic hostile policy toward the DPRK.
