FM spokesman denounces US’ anti-DPRK move

A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry issued the following statement on Nov. 17:

On November 14, an anti-DPRK "human rights resolution" was railroaded at a meeting of the Third Committee of the 74th UN General Assembly.

We bitterly denounce it as a politically-motivated reckless provocation committed by hostile forces to definitely set the DPRK as their target and destroy its system by brigandish means.

The adoption of the "resolution" under the signboard of the UN fully reveals that the UN has been reduced to a marionette controlled by the US.

As history shows, it is the stereotyped method of the imperialists to cook up "human rights" issue for the regime change in the countries that disobey them and to use it as an excuse for aggression.

The "resolution" was railroaded at a time when trumpeting about "human rights" is being heard among political circles in Washington and human scum who abandoned even their native places and families frequent the White House. This clearly proves that the US stands behind the anti-DPRK "human rights" racket.

Since the US expressed its will to adjust the joint military exercise with south Korea some days ago, we, for our part, tried hard to appreciate it as part of positive attempts to ease tensions and make the most of chance for dialogue in consideration of the DPRK, its dialogue partner.

But, the railroaded "resolution" made us confirm once again that the US still dreams a foolish dream of making our system collapse.

We approach with vigilance the fact that the US has committed another political provocation getting on our nerves at this sensitive time when DPRK-US relations have been put at a delicate moment.

The reality proves that the US, obsessed with the inveterate prejudice against our ideology and system, is still wedded to the hostile policy geared to isolate and stifle the DPRK.

In particular, the US dreams of bringing down our system when the DPRK-US dialogue is high on the agenda, which shows that it has no intention to sincerely work with us towards the settlement of issues.

Therefore, we have no willingness to meet such dialogue partner.

Worse still, it is not necessary to sit at the table with the US which tries to bring the dignified DPRK to the so-called International Criminal Court.
