The Permanent Mission of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the United Nations Office at Geneva and Other International Organizations in Switzerland issued on March 23 the press statement with regard to the anti-DPRK “human rights resolution” railroaded once again by the hostile forces at the 46th Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

The press statement reads as follows:

The Permanent Mission of the DPRK vehemently denies and categorically rejects the anti-DPRK “human rights resolution” – an illegal and outrageous paper woven by political fraud – that was forced into adoption at the 46th Session of the United Nations Human Rights Council.

The European Union and other Western countries have turned dead their backs on the stark reality of the DPRK and disgustingly embraced a handful of human scums. The diabolical and maniacal “human rights” smear campaign by these countries against the DPRK is prompting the high resentment of the entire Korean people.

Their reckless human rights racket is the height of last-ditch attempts by the losers of history to tarnish the dignified prestige of our state and check our people’s vigorous advance towards victory of the socialist cause.

In our country, where people-first principle becomes the main mode of politics, all the lines and policies of the state are worked out on the basis of the will and requirements of the people, and all state affairs are carried out on the principle of giving highest and absolute priority to the people’s interests and their convenience.

Yet insufficient as the living conditions may be, all the people are united into a large harmonious family, sharing sweets and bitters, and are opening up the road to prosperity by their own hands. This is the intrinsic feature of our society.

An attempt to measure our people’s enjoyment of human rights with the Western-style human rights yardstick is a foolish behavior equivalent to a 3-year-old little boy struggling to judge the knowledge of a university student.

It should be made clear that the main culprits who must seat in the criminal’s dock of human rights court are none other than the sponsors of the anti-DPRK “human rights resolution”.

The world is now vividly witnessing all kinds of crimes rooted in the extreme hate, including horrible racial discrimination, xenophobia, islamophobia, gun-related crimes and police brutalities committed in the Western countries which pretend to be the protagonists of human rights.

The horrifying reality unfolding in the Western countries offers an evidence that the human rights mechanisms and standards of these countries are carrying serious problems.

The UNHRC is obliged to work to shape the international human rights forum into the one for protecting and promoting the genuine human rights by taking impartiality and objectivity as the basic mission of its activities, and it should not acquiesce in the slightest practice of high-handedness and arbitrariness by a handful of specific countries and forces.

There are no human rights apart from state rights.

It is a bitter lesson learnt from the modern history of international politics that people deprived of the state sovereignty are destined to lose everything they so much cherish and are forced into suffering the miserable fate in the vortex of social turbulence caused by war.

We will continue as ever to strongly counter to the end the despicable anti-DPRK “human rights” plots of the hostile forces by employing all possible ways and means.

The West is well advised to mind their own business, refraining from its impudence of interfering in the internal affairs of other countries by way of chanting the hackneyed “human rights” phrase.
