Institute for American Studies of DPRK Censures U.S. for Releasing Anti-DPRK Press Statement

The Policy Research Director of the Institute for American Studies of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea(DPRK), gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on May 11 with regard to the press statement released recently by the U.S. Department of State for the purpose of tarnishing the DPRK’s human rights situation on the occasion of so-called “North Korea Freedom Week.”

The press statement of the U.S. State Department is nothing but a sophistry full of falsehoods and fabrications, which stems from a sinister political purpose to tarnish the dignified image of the DPRK.

What should be taken more serious is the fact that the United States, turning its back on the June 12 DPRK-U.S. Joint Statement committing to establish new bilateral relations, is taking the lead of hostile actions against the DPRK by instigating the anti-DPRK plotting agencies embedded with the inveterate repugnance for the DPRK.

This has laid bare the American ulterior intention that it does not truly want the improved DPRK-U.S. relations, but seeks only to overthrow our system.

The latest release of press statement by the U.S. State Department is clear evidence that the present Administration follows in the footsteps of the previous Administrations in regard of the policy hostile to the DPRK.

Although the U.S. is making desperate and foolish efforts to bring us down by clinging to the “human rights” racket along with the “maximum pressure” aimed at destroying our system, it should bear in mind that such an attempt will never work against us but instead is further pushing us to a direction where the U.S. does not want to see.

The time when the U.S. was presumptuously acting as a “human rights judge” is gone long ago, and it would better be obsessed with its own business, rather than poking its nose into others affairs.
