PYONGYANG, October 18. /TASS/. The United States and its allies deliberately distort the human rights situation in North Korea "to tarnish its reputation in the international arena," a representative of the National Association for the Study of Human Rights said in a statement released on Saturday via the KCNA news agency.
Western countries criticise the report, which was presented recently to the United Nations Organisation as an official document and which received international recognition, to "focus on activities of the committee they created to investigate into human rights violations in the North," the report reads. Pyongyang believes that this committee makes decisions based on data provided by defectors from North Korea, "who have committed serious crimes in their home country."
In Association stressed that North Korea "is taking efforts to strengthen international cooperation in the human rights area." However, the United States and its allies, "seek to politicize the issue of human rights and undermine the social system of the DPRK under the pretext of their violation."
The Association’s representative said the DPRK would disrupt attempts from "hostile forces" to cause damage to the country "by means of their inflated campaign in human rights, and will undertake all necessary measures to protect the socialist system of the Korean style.
