Hostile forces' anti-DPRK "human rights" racket slammed

Pyongyang, October 17 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the DPRK Association for Human Rights Studies issued the following statement on Friday:

The report of the DPRK Association for Human Rights Studies which most comprehensively and correctly reflects the human rights performance of the DPRK where the people have become masters of the country was distributed as an official document of the UN General Assembly, UN Security Council and UN Human Rights Council.

As already reported, no sooner had the report which historically, systematically and comprehensively deals with the nature of the socialist system of the DPRK centered on the popular masses, its policy of ensuring human rights and the people's enjoyment of human rights been published than it commanded strong support and deep sympathy of the international community.

Many media of the world gave wide publicity to the full text or main contents of the report and widely reported about the briefings clarifying the human rights performance and stand of the DPRK held in New York and various other places.

Many countries are appreciating the report as a document which comprehensively deals with the advantageous human rights performance in the DPRK and responding with keen interest to its efforts to further promote its people's enjoyment of human rights and boost international cooperation.

Meanwhile, they are ridiculing and accusing the "report of the Commission of Inquiry" on the human rights situation in the DPRK worked out with its speculation and hostility plus the individual "testimonies" made by such swindlers as "defectors from the north" without any mention of the policies and social system of the DPRK and its will and efforts for international cooperation to protect and promote genuine human rights.

The anti-DPRK "human rights resolution" EU, Japan and other hostile forces are trying to bring up for discussion at the UN General Assembly is a typical politicization, selectivity and double standards. So, there are voices expressing views that those countries desirous of protection and promotion of genuine human rights should oppose this and will do so.

But, the U.S.-led forces hostile to the DPRK are persistently working to deliberately downplay the report of the DPRK Association for Human Rights Studies and draw attention to the bankrupt "report of the Commission of Inquiry."

This proves that their moves were prompted by their black-hearted intention to prevent the reality of the DPRK and its just assertions from being known to the world, tarnish the image of the DPRK and, furthermore, bring down its social system. It once again proves the truth that human rights precisely mean sovereignty.

If the popular masses are to enjoy genuine human rights, they must firmly defend the sovereignty of the country before anything else, and it is necessary to strongly react to the hostile forces attempting to meddle in the internal affairs of other countries under the signboard of "human rights." This is the conclusion drawn by the DPRK.

The politicization, selectivity, and double standards to abuse human rights, the universal value of mankind, for a sinister political purpose should never be tolerated.

The vicious and base human rights racket of the hostile forces against the DPRK is lashing the Korean people into great fury.

The DPRK will decisively frustrate the persistent anti-DPRK "human rights" campaign of the hostile forces and continue to make utmost efforts to firmly defend the best Korean-style socialist system and provide better conditions for the people's enjoyment of human rights.
