Rodong Sinmun Slams U.S. Trumpeting about "Human Rights"

Pyongyang, September 7 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the White House in the recent press conference reeled off a spate of vituperation peppered with lies and fabrications, expressing "concern" over the "human rights situation" in north Korea.

Rodong Sinmun Wednesday says in a commentary in this regard:

This is no more than a cynical ploy of those taken aback by the DPRK's successful test-fire of SLBM to divert the world's attention to its "human rights issue."

The aim sought by the U.S. in vociferating about the "human rights issue in north Korea" is to label the DPRK "human rights abuser" and bring down the socialist system through international pressure.

Over the past several decades, the U.S. has persistently threatened the DPRK's sovereignty with nuclear weapons since it divided Korea into two parts and posed grave threat to the Korean people's right to existence through various forms of sanctions and pressure. Therefore, it is preposterous and the height of impudence for the U.S. to voice "concern" over someone's "human rights situation".

It is imprudent for the U.S. to take issue with "human rights" of other countries though it is in such poor position that it can hardly handle a sea of human rights problems in its mainland, unaware of its daily waning muscle.

The U.S. is the world's worst human rights abuser.

The U.S. has neither qualifications nor right to play the role of "a human rights judge" as it is beset with all sorts of human rights abuses.

The U.S. desperate "human rights" campaign aimed to stifle the DPRK would only heighten the Korean people's hatred for the former and exceptionally increase their efforts to bolster up the nuclear force. -0-
