KCNA Refutes US Accusation against DPRK over "Human Rights Issue"

Pyongyang, July 5 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the U.S. State Department recently asserted that "human rights issue" in the DPRK would be a top-priority concern of the U.S. as it would adversely affect a process for mending the relations with the DPRK.

In a word this means the DPRK-U.S. relations may improve should the DPRK meet the U.S. demand over the "human rights issue".

This is a challenge and mockery of the sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK.

Lurking behind these utterances is a foolish aim to bring its "human rights offensive" against the DPRK to success with improved relations as a bargaining chip.

As shown by history, the U.S. has always used "human rights issue" as a means for interfering and pressurizing other countries in its foreign policy.

The U.S. talk that the "human rights issue" in the DPRK is its top- priority concern only betrays its scenario for aggression to intensify the interference in the internal affairs of the DPRK and pressure upon it to an extreme pitch.

The DPRK will never allow even the slightest attempt of the U.S. to bring down the inviolable socialist system in the DPRK under the pretext of "human rights issue".

By origin, the U.S. has no face to talk about the "human rights issue" in the DPRK as it is the worst human rights abuser which has systematically violated the rights of the Korean people in the most inhuman manner.

Such "human rights issue" as what the U.S. touted much does not exist in the DPRK.

The U.S. has wantonly infringed upon the Korean people's rights to live and exist through its undisguised armed intervention, genocide and persistent and harsh sanctions and blockade, considering the DPRK's dignified socialist system as a thorn in its flesh century after century.

The U.S. had better roll back its policy of aggression toward the DPRK at once and improve, above all, its worst human rights record in the world if it is truly interested in human rights.
