UN Human Rights Council's "Resolution on Human Rights" against DPRK Rejected by DPRK FM Spokesman
Pyongyang, March 22 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the DPRK Foreign Ministry Friday gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA as regards the very provocative "resolution" against the DPRK adopted at a session of the UN Human Rights Council:

The 22nd session of the UN Human Rights Council on Thursday adopted a "resolution" which calls for forming a "commission of inquiry" on the basis of all sorts of false materials slandering the DPRK.

The "resolution on human rights" against the DPRK cooked up by the U.S. and its allies every year with inveterate repugnancy and hostility towards the DPRK is a political chicanery which does not deserve even a passing note.

The U.S., driven into a tight corner by a series of setbacks sustained by it in the political and military confrontation with the DPRK, is kicking up an anti-DPRK human rights campaign involving its allies in a ridiculous bid to hurt the DPRK.

We will as always totally reject and disregard the recent "human rights resolution" against the DPRK, a product of political confrontation and conspiracy.

The U.S. and the West have slandered the socialist countries over their "human rights issue" since the era of the Cold War. Their adoption of the anti-DPRK "human rights resolution", a manifestation of their inveterate bad habit, simply betrays their base and vulgar practice of abusing the human rights, the noble concept of mankind, for their sinister political purpose.

If the UN Human Rights Council is to discharge its mission, it should put an end to the farce of adopting anti-DPRK "human rights resolutions", the height of politicization and selectivity of human rights and double standards, and take issue with the U.S. violation of sovereignty of other states in different parts of the world, to begin with.

The ceaseless evil cycle of terrorism and revenge in those countries which turned into scenes of destruction and murder due to the aggression and interference by outside forces and the tragic human rights performance arousing serious concern of the international community clearly prove how serious the consequences of violation of sovereignty of other states are.

The ever-escalating hostile acts of the U.S. to bring down the ideology and system chosen by the Korean people will only intensify their all-out action against the U.S.
