DPRK Says No to U.S. Dialogue on Human Rights, Nuclear Dialogue Aimed to Bring down It

Pyongyang, November 4 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Tuesday gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA blasting the U.S. for politicizing its accusation against the DPRK over its human rights issue:
U.S. authorities including the secretary of State and the special envoy for six-party talks of the Department of State let loose a spate of politically motivated malignant invectives to tarnish the image of the DPRK politically and morally and justify its moves to isolate and stifle it over its non-existent 'human rights issue'.
It is a trite method of the U.S. to fake up 'human rights issues' of those countries which incur its displeasure, cause internal instability, split and destabilization and thus seek regime changes through 'coloring revolution' and 'peaceful transition' in the long-run.
There is a big difference between the discussion on genuine human rights and 'human rights issue' used as a political lever for making something like 'coloring revolution.'
The U.S. does not recognize the state sovereignty which comprehensively reflects the human rights of the Korean people. It is, therefore, nonsensical for the U.S. to take issue with their human rights this or that way.
The present U.S. administration, the present U.S. secretary of State, in particular, unlike the successive U.S. administrations, are officially pursuing a policy for bringing down the state and social system of the DPRK over the 'human rights issue', thus reneging on the September 19, 2005 joint statement which calls upon the DPRK and the U.S. to 'respect each other's sovereignty and exist peacefully,' the statement which laid a basic groundwork for denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula.
The denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula has become totally meaningless for the DPRK under the situation where the U.S. is reneging on its commitment. It is self-evident that one party cannot discuss its unilateral disarming with the rival party keen to bring it down at any cost.
The DPRK keeps the door of dialogue on genuine human rights open to the countries that respect its sovereignty but it will never allow any human rights dialogue or nuclear one with the enemy keen to overthrow it.
The U.S. will witness the shining victory of the DPRK's line of simultaneously developing the two fronts before the expiry of the tenure of office of the present administration, not just the distant future.
