‘Advanced nation of human rights’ loses its face

Date: 02/07/2020 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

“In the face of ongoing combat between the whole mankind and epidemic, the US government rather stirred up a hornet’s nest in all parts of the world while wielding a stick of hegemony, tried to divert public attention elsewhere and shift responsibility onto others, severely destroyed the unity and cooperation of the international community to fight the pandemic and blatantly violated the spirit of international human rights law.”

This is part of an article the Chinese human rights research society recently issued under the title of “‘American-style human rights’ crisis standing out more markedly in the period of COVID-19 spread”.

This is the objective reality and all the countries on the earth have witnessed or experienced it with the spread of the epidemic as a momentum.

The US put in action the Helms-Burton Act to prevent the transport of medical supplies that were offered to Cuba for the combat against COVID-19 and committed a modern version of piracy by seizing 200 000 masks Germany was importing via Bangkok of Thailand to Berlin for the prevention of the epidemic. Not contented with these, it attempted to cook up a new anti-Cuba law for punishing the countries that accept Cuba’s medical cooperation.

These days alone, it is working to obstruct Venezuela’s purchase of medicines, medical supplies, foodstuffs and raw and other materials for production by blocking its routes for the export and import of crude oil.

The self-righteous thinking and action of the US, which only pursues its selfish aim and clings to inveterate consciousness of hostility far from joining efforts with others in the fight against the great disaster threatening the whole humankind, are compelling many countries to give a mocking laugh.

Cuba said that the US’ policy of hostility is laying obstacles in Syria which is engaged in reconstruction amid the fight against COVID-19, describing the fabrication of a new sanctions law against the country as a grave and flagrant violation of the UN Charter, international law and human rights of the Syrians.

Laying bare the US moves to isolate and stifle the country, Venezuela branded them a serious crime against humanity and Iran revealed that the US is trampling down upon the sovereignty of other countries through the backing of terrorists, infringement of human rights and sanctions.

The world is clearly witnessing that the human rights abuses committed by the US against other nations are habitual and inveterate.

The anti-racist demonstrations, which spread throughout the US with the killing of a black man by a white policeman in Minnesota as a momentum, mark an important occasion in informing the world of the US’ falsehood and deception.

US mass media as well as foreign media dubbed the murder case another round of racist scandal as they reported that such a barbarous police outrage can be seen everywhere in the US territory.

On June 15, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination said that racial discrimination had systematically taken root in the government agencies of the US for the past centuries, posing threats to African-Americans and depriving them of legal, economic, social and cultural rights.
