UN "Resolution on Human Rights" against DPRK Rejected: FM Spokesman
Pyongyang, March 31 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Sunday gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA as regards the adoption of the "resolution" against the DPRK at the UN Human Rights Council:
The 25th meeting of the UN Human Rights Council released a "report" of the "Commission of Inquiry" on the human rights situation in the DPRK and railroaded a "resolution" against it.
The DPRK has not recognized the CI grouping political swindlers, marionettes of the U.S. and the West, and totally opposes and rejects the above-said resolution, a product of the vicious hostile policy towards it.
Unable to bring down the DPRK by taking issue with it over its nuclear issue only, the U.S. and other hostile forces are making false facts in succession in a bid to intensify "human rights racket" against it to invent an excuse for interfering in its internal affairs and topple down its social system.
The U.S. and Japan, war criminal states and unethical criminal states with the history of aggression, plunder and murder against other countries and nations in the past, and EU are concealing their past history stained with blood, styling themselves "human rights judges" and resorting to political slander and attack on independent countries, steeped in inveterate repugnancy toward them.
If human rights are to be discussed sincerely, it is necessary to bring for discussion at international criminal court and punish, first of all, the U.S. aggression of sovereign states including Iraq and Afghanistan, genocide, Japan's past heinous crimes against humanity and misanthropy, racial discrimination, chauvinism and new Nazism rampant in EU countries.
Human rights precisely mean national sovereignty.
If politicization of human rights, selectivity and double standards pursued by the U.S. which has no qualification to say about genuine human rights and forces following it are connived at, acts of calling into question specific countries, prompted by political motive, will be more rampant day by day.
The DPRK will firmly defend the idea and socialist system chosen by itself and continue sincerely discharging its duty in the field of international human rights.
