S. Korea Accused of Lobbying Anti-DPRK Act

Pyongyang, June 20 (KCNA) -- The DPRK condemned the south Korean group of traitors for their ongoing attempt to lobby "north Korean human rights act", extremely provocative to the DPRK, despite the strong protest of people at home and abroad.

The Secretariat of the Committee for the Peaceful Reunification of Korea made this criticism in its information bulletin No. 973 on Monday.

The act is an anti-reunification and confrontation law aimed at sinister political purposes to slander and defile the socialist system of the DPRK and the dignity of its leadership and undermine it from within, the bulletin said, adding:

The south Korean puppet group made several attempts so far to enact this law but failed with rejection by people at home and abroad.

Now it is again trying to railroad the law through the "National Assembly", which shows how far the group has gone in inciting confrontation.

The "north Korean human rights act" is an anti-reunification, treacherous and inhumane law much more vicious than the notorious "National Security Law" in terms of its character, purpose and contents.

Through this act, the group of traitors seeks to justify abduction of DPRK citizens, psychological warfare against it and other confrontation and smear campaigns and lay a legal foundation for such moves.

In this way it schemes to realize its pipedream about "contingency" and "unification under the liberal and democratic system."

Such attempt is just an official and total denial of the system, sovereignty and dignity of the DPRK and it is for legalizing confrontation in system with the DPRK. This is a reckless deed designed to totally break the north-south agreement on recognizing and respecting the system of each side and push the north-south relations deeper to deadlock and confrontation.

If the puppet group enacts the criminal act, the army and people of the DPRK who regard socialism as their life and soul will consider it as an official declaration of war against the system and people of the DPRK and the second "target case" and take decisive counteraction against it.

The group will be entirely to blame for unimaginable grave consequences to be entailed by its persistent moves to enact the anti-DPRK law despite the DPRK's warning, it said.
