Japan's Anti-DPRK Campaign Accused

    Pyongyang, March 8 (KCNA) -- The Japanese Democratic Party recently presented what it called a "bill on preventing the human rights abuses in north Korea" which calls for putting an end to the "issue of abduction and human rights abuses by north Korea" to the House of Representatives. It is said that the Liberal Democratic Party of Japan, too, is contemplating the introduction of the similar bill. In this regard Minju Joson today observes in a signed commentary:
    The above-said bill is little different from the "North Korean Human Rights Act" in the U.S. in its criminal aim.
    The bill is aimed to build up international public opinion intended to tarnish the DPRK's image and thus escalate the pressure upon it and "bring down" its system. It is the real intention of the Japanese reactionaries to realize their ambition for overseas expansion with the U.S. backing.
    Now that they dare try to "topple" the system of the DPRK, availing themselves of the U.S. frantic moves to stifle it, the DPRK has no option but to clarify its stand on Japan.
    The DPRK has shown Japan its utmost magnanimity and best will from its consistent stand to contribute to peace and security on the Korean Peninsula and the rest of the world by improving the DPRK-Japan relations in line with the desire of the peoples of the two countries and requirements of the times. Japan, however, has responded to this with bitter animosity. It is the DPRK's principled stand to respond to good will and hostility in kind.
    Clear are the DPRK's present attitude and stand toward Japan. The DPRK will not deal with Japan any more.
    The Japanese reactionaries should properly understand this attitude and stand toward Japan and behave themselves, though belatedly. Everything will entirely depend on the Japan's attitude.
