“Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights” in Seoul Must Be Abolished at Once

Date: 31/01/2023 | Source: Ministry of Foreign Affairs (EN) | Read original version at source

In a recent interview with VOA, the so-called head of “the office of the high commissioner for human rights” in Seoul overtly said that the main mission of their office is “monitoring, analyzing and documenting human rights violation in north Korea” and “searching for accountability”.

As for the “the office of the high commissioner for human rights” in Seoul, it is an out-and-out tool for executing U.S. hostile policy against DPRK and works as an instrument for “human rights” campaign against the DPRK. It has nothing to do with the work to protect and promote human rights in every sense of the word.

The office is advertising that it was established under the “resolution” of the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) but it is no more than a smokescreen to cover up its true colors.

The DPRK categorically rejected all of the fabricated documents including the anti-DPRK “human rights resolution” railroaded at the 25 th session of UNHRC in March 2014 as an outcome of vicious hostile policy of the U.S. And it has never recognized a mechanism or an office cooked up by these documents.

Even the Western media, to say nothing of many countries, condemned it as “a deceitful means for internal interference” rigged up out of extreme prejudice and sinister political intention, and they remain dead set against its establishment which will worsen the situation on the Korean Peninsula.

The U.S. enticed south Korea to establish such a plot-breeding organization in Seoul. And the spokesperson for the U.S. State Department went on the stage saying nonsensical remarks that he expresses “special thanks” and his “willingness to render full support”. This serves as positive proof that the “the office of the high commissioner for human rights” in Seoul is none other than the “office of the U.S.”

After having sprouted like a poisonous mushroom on a soil notorious for flagrant human rights violation, this office did nothing but took the lead in “human rights” scheme aimed at tarnishing the external image of our country at the instigation of the U.S.

With the U.S. pulling strings behind the curtain, this plot-breeding house also assumes full responsibility for drafting all kinds of anti-DPRK “human rights reports” issued at international human rights arena and for directing and performing the farce behind the signboard of “forum” and “seminar”.

It is really a matter for great regret that this office – a mere tool for the sinister political purpose of the hostile forces – is misusing the sacred name of the UN.

No matter how hard the U.S. and other hostile forces try to tarnish the DPRK’s image by mobilizing even the plot-breeding tools like “the office of the high commissioner for human rights” in Seoul, they can never conceal the reality of the DPRK where entire people live in harmony with noble virtue and affection, where human rights are fully ensured on an institutional, legal and practical basis.

The United Nations, which regards impartiality, objectivity and strict neutrality as its acting principles, must no longer tolerate the existence of such a plot-breeding organization as the “the office of the high commissioner for human rights” in Seoul, and it should take a step to abolish it at once.
