Pyongyang, March 7 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the DPRK Tuesday gave the following answer to the question raised by KCNA in connection with the fact that the U.S. again slandered the DPRK as a "drug dealer" recently: The U.S. Department of State asserted in its recent "International Narcotics Control and Strategy Report" that the DPRK is involved in "illegal deal in drug" and others. In the annual report the United States admitted that there was no "drug dealing case" linked with the DPRK in 2005 but fabricated misinformation to pull up it again. This clearly shows to what base moves the U.S. resorts in its bid to pressurize and do harm to the DPRK.
The U.S. is internationally censured for being the biggest dealer in drug in the world and a cesspool of drug-related crimes. It is ridiculous of this country to impertinently talk about drug trafficking in various countries every year.
The socialist system in the DPRK guided by the man-centered Juche idea strictly bans by law not only the use and deal in drug which makes people mentally crippled but its production.
We will take more thorough-going preventive measures including those for the enforcement of the law on narcotics control so that drug trafficking rife in such countries as the U.S. and other drug-related crimes may not find their way to our society under any circumstances.
