KCNA Censures Plot behind UN Human Rights Council

Pyongyang, March 13 (KCNA) -- The United States is using the meeting of the United Nations Human Rights Council now under way in Geneva as a platform for hatching a politically motivated sinister plot against the DPRK.

The U.S. is running the whole gamut of cynical ploys to gather together its followers in a bid to cook up an anti-DPRK resolution which calls for keeping the "special rapporteur on human rights issue in north Korea" as he is, etc. at the meeting.

This is another unpardonable infringement upon the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK and a wanton violation of human rights and democracy.

Such ridiculous burlesque orchestrated by the U.S. is aimed at tarnishing the image of the dignified DPRK and, furthermore, bringing down the ideology and system in the DPRK.

Human rights mean national sovereignty and vice versa.

The U.S. has long wantonly violated the sovereignty and rights of other countries and peoples, abusing human rights and democracy, the universally accepted idea of the international community, as levers for aggression and interference in their internal affairs.

This outrageous "human rights" racket of the U.S. has mercilessly trampled down upon the democratic rights of many countries and nations of the world to set up social systems suited to their actual conditions and in line with the requirements of their peoples and live an independent life.

The original aim sought by the international community in creating the UN Human Rights Council in 2006 which replaced the UN Committee on Human Rights is to put an end to the persistent arbitrary practices of the U.S. in the international arena dealing with human rights.

At first the U.S. worked hard to scuttle the efforts to create the above-said council, but, finding it hard to thwart them any longer, made a U-turn all of a sudden in a bid to achieve its sinister aim. It pretended to be a supporter of the move and joined it.

What the U.S. has done since it made its way to the council is that it has only defended the human rights abuses by such countries as Israel and infringed upon the sovereignty of anti-U.S. independent countries including Cuba.

By keeping "special human rights rapporteurs," in particular, as its mere marionettes the U.S. seeks to politicize the human rights issues and use them for dealing with these issues according to double-standards in a selective manner.

The DPRK has never recognized the ghost-like "special rapporteur on human rights issue in north Korea", a leftover of the already defunct UN Committee on Human Rights, and categorically turned down the illegal resolutions on the DPRK.

If the UN Human Rights Council is to develop its activities as desired by the international community opposed to politicization, selectivity and double-standards on human rights, it should appoint, to begin with, a special rapporteur taking issue with the U.S., the world's worst human rights abuser, and adopt a resolution critical of the U.S.

The U.S. is a tundra of human rights as it has the world's worst human rights record: Rights to existence of hundreds of millions of toiling people are wantonly abused due to the unlimited pursuit of profits by the privileged circles including monopoly plutocrats, shuddering murders including gun-related crimes are daily occurrences and racist forces are going so rampant that even the president of the U.S. shrinks up after censuring the racial discrimination by white police.

It was the U.S. that invaded Afghanistan and Iraq after deceiving mankind and turned them into mayhems of terrorism and genocide. It built secret prisons in different parts of the world, mercilessly killing innocent people and forcing humiliation and disgrace upon them. The brigandish "war on terrorism" launched by it is an unprecedented war to deprive other countries of their national sovereignty and a horrible war to abuse human rights.

The international arena dealing with human rights should naturally force the above-said war criminals and worst human rights abusers to stand trial and face a stern punishment.

The U.S. would be well advised to stop the political charade and mind its own business as it may cause the above-said council to meet the same miserable end as that of the committee.
