Statement by Spokesperson for Korea Association for Human Rights Studies

Pyongyang, December 9 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Korea Association for Human Rights Studies made public the following statement on Saturday:

Recently the U.S. has incited hostility towards the DPRK more extremely than before while staging various sorts of fanatical anti-DPRK "human rights" rackets.

Standing on the van of it is Julie Turner, "special envoy on north Korea's human rights issues" of U.S. Department of State.

Her anti-DPRK actions for the past months clearly show that she is not a "special envoy on human rights" with human rights issues as her regular business but a "vanguard" in carrying out U.S. hostile policy towards the DPRK and a "confrontation special envoy" meddling in others' internal affairs and provoking confrontation.

The so-called protection of "defectors from the north", expansion of inflow of information and intensifying of punishment over "human rights violation" brought up by Turner is a manifestation of an aggressive attempt to lay foundations for toppling down the system and government ultimately by demonizing the dignified DPRK and producing psychological instability and discontent within it.

This is the essence of the U.S. repeated policy on "human rights" of the DPRK.

The U.S. is, indeed, the world's worst human rights abuser to be blamed by the international community as it has made the whole world noisy with its foreign policy for hegemony and interference in internal affairs of other countries and caused the humanitarian crisis of the bloodshed in the Middle East and other parts of the world.

The present reality in which human rights cannot be protected if state sovereignty is violated clearly proves that sovereignty means human rights and that the protection of sovereignty and the provision of human rights are inseparable.

The greatest threat to the DPRK's provision of human rights is coming from the U.S. hostile policy towards the DPRK, and it is the only way of defending and promoting the genuine human rights of the Korean people to remove all sorts of hostile threats from the U.S. and eradicate the root of the U.S. illegal hostile policy.

Under any circumstances human rights can never be a tool for implementing the hegemonic policy of a particular state.

The DPRK will firmly defend the independent rights and interests of the Korean people from the encroachment on sovereignty and human rights by the hostile threatening forces including the U.S., and actively join in the efforts of the international community for the provision of international justice and genuine human rights. -0-
