UNITED NATIONS, February 17. /TASS/. North Korea’s mission to the United Nations has called the US "the worst human rights violator in the world" and condemned Washington’s plans to hold a conference on Pyongyang’s human rights situation on Tuesday.
The mission said in its statement released on Monday that the upcoming event called "North Korean Human Rights: The Road Ahead" in Washington is a "political plot" aimed against the North Korean leadership.
"The United States has no qualification at all to talk about the human rights situation in other countries," the document says, also urging Washington to first deal with its own problems.
The conference, due to be held at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, will be attended by Marzuki Darusman, UN Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in the DPRK, and Michael Kirby, Chairman of the United Nations Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in North Korea.
The North Korean mission says Tuesday’s forum is the "product of the US hostile policy against the DPRK." The US has earlier ignored Pyongyang’s request to participate in the conference, the statement says.
