PYONGYANG, June 23. /TASS/. The North Korean Foreign Ministry has called the ceremony dedicated to the opening of a UN human rights office in Seoul on Tuesday a politically motivated provocation, the ministry’s statement said.

"This criminal act will inevitably lead to the escalation of tensions on the Korean peninsula," the Foreign Ministry statement said. Pyongyang insists that this office is "a center for collecting misinformation concocted by defectors from the North with a view of implementing the hostile US policy towards North Korea."

The hostile forces, "seek by all means to tarnish the reputation of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and overthrow its social system using the non-existent problem of human rights violations," the statement says. The ministry warned that "North Korea would retaliate" and would take "the most resolute measures."

The participants in the opening ceremony held under conditions of enhanced security were addressed by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Zeid al-Hussein.
