DPRK FM Spokesman Accuses U.S. of Pulling up DPRK over Issue of Religious Freedom

Pyongyang, August 12 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry gave the following answer to the question put by KCNA Friday as regards the fact that the U.S. pulled up the DPRK over the issue of religious freedom:

The publication of the "2015 International Religious Freedom Report" by the U.S. Department of State more clearly proved that the U.S., the sworn enemy of the Korean people, remains unchanged in its hostile intention to destabilize the DPRK and bring down its social system at any cost under the pretext of "protection of human rights" and "freedom of religion."

The U.S. has already lost elementary qualifications to talk about human rights as it has outrageously interfered in the internal affairs of sovereign states in various parts of the world and infringed upon the sovereignty of other countries and nations under the deceptive signboard of "protection of human rights" and "democracy."

Finding it hard to bring down the DPRK by force of arms, the U.S is now making last-ditch efforts to tarnish its international image and stir up the atmosphere of putting international pressure on it by kicking up the anti-DPRK "human rights" racket.

Under this situation the DPRK will bolster up in every way its self-defensive military capabilities with nuclear deterrence as a pivot in order to safeguard its power and revolution. -0-
