KCNA Comments on "Human Rights Judges"

Date: 23/02/2024 | Source: Rodong Sinmun (En) | Read original version at source

An "envoy for the human rights" of the U.S. Department of State visited Japan and the puppet ROK recently.

It is as clear as noonday that a confab would be held to draw international attention through another "human rights racket against the DPRK".

This is little short of a periodical fit of the hostile forces suffering incurable "mental illness," driven into a tight corner in the political and military confrontation with the DPRK. Therefore, it is just as expected.

The foolish "human rights" conspiratorial racket, which has nothing to do with ensuring genuine human rights, will not work on the DPRK.

But there is a need to take this opportunity.

The most urgent issue facing the international community in the field of human rights is the protection of the rights to existence of inhabitants in the Gaza Strip exposed to mass killings.

Since the armed clash between the Islamic Resistance Movement of Palestine (Hamas) and Israel broke out in October last year, tens of thousands of innocent Palestinians have been killed and one million and hundreds of thousand of refugees in Rafah City, the southern city of Gaza, are exposed to death threats.

In particular, many Palestinian children have been killed or have become orphans and disabled. Even elementary right to existence is violated, far from the right to education and healthcare. This miserable reality arouses serious concern of the international community.

Even politicians of the Western countries, pro-U.S. and pro-Israeli ones, admit that human casualties and humanitarian situation in the Gaza Strip have already reached an "intolerable" phase, urging an urgent investigation into whether Israel has observed international law on human rights and relevant treaties.

However, the U.S., often taking issue with the "human rights situation" of other countries and styling itself "human rights judge", is keeping mum about it.

The world is watching once again the shameless behavior of the U.S., asking why the "human rights champion", which used to cry out for adopting human rights resolutions, imposing sanctions on some countries with faked-up data and referring the issue to the International Court of Justice, is keeping mum about the thrice-cursed human rights abuses committed by Israel.

Where does the United States focus its attention?

There is no more obvious answer than the fact.

The U.S. is seeking to divert the attention of the international community by orchestrating the visit by its "special envoy for human rights", while feigning ignorance about the terrible human rights situation in the Gaza Strip. This clearly proves that the attention of the "human rights judge" is not focused on the protection of genuine human rights.

The U.S. seeks to tarnish the image of the anti-imperialist independent countries, which are opposed to its high-handed and arbitrary practices, under the pretext of "human rights issue", alienate their governments from people and finally overthrow their social systems.

The alternative and double-dealing American-style "human rights" are the means for implementing the hegemonic policy and for aggression and interference in internal affairs as such standards and countermeasures change according to whether the targets are pro-U.S. or anti-U.S.

The present reality, in which human rights cannot be protected if the sovereignty of the state is violated, clearly proves that the DPRK’s claim - human rights precisely means the sovereignty - is entirely just.

If the DPRK had not defended the sovereignty of the state and firmly bolstered up its capabilities for self-defence, it would have suffered the same misfortune as the Palestinians.

Human rights not guaranteed by the sovereignty and strength of the state are just like building a castle on the sand. If the sovereignty is weak and the sovereignty is not defended, it is impossible to guarantee elementary right to existence, to say nothing of the dignity and development of individuals. This is a bitter lesson taught by the present world.

We will resolutely foil the U.S. and riff-raffs’ "human rights" racket, regarding it as a wanton violation of the sovereignty of the DPRK and the most grave challenge to its existence and development, and defend the inviolable sovereignty and genuine human rights in the future, too.

The special envoy for "human rights", engrossed in the "human rights smear campaign against the DPRK", had better visit the Middle East, if he or she is not a political maid of the White House but a true "human rights champion." Then the envoy may get "actual results."
