Statement of Spokesman for DPRK Foreign Ministry

Pyongyang, May 2 (KCNA) — A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK released the following statement Sunday:

The U.S. State Department spokesperson in a press release about a “ceremony” sponsored by anti-DPRK human rights organizations on April 28 smeared the statewide anti-epidemic measures in the DPRK for protecting the life and security of the people from the worldwide pandemic as “human rights abuses” and even faulted the dignity of our supreme leadership in the grave politically-motivated provocation.

The DPRK Foreign Ministry vehemently denounces the provocation from the U.S. as a vivid manifestation of the hostile policy toward the DPRK to tarnish its image and as a crude violation of its state sovereignty.

The “human rights issue” touted by the U.S. is a political trick designed to destroy the ideology and social system in the DPRK.

The U.S. is not entitled to claim human rights as it has inflicted unspeakable sufferings and pain on the people of the DPRK with unprecedented vicious hostile policy.

The U.S. is the tundra of human rights as deaths of innocent people due to social inequality and racial discrimination are daily occurrences there. It is also the world’s worst epidemically defeated country as more than 580,000 people have died of COVID-19 there.

Death toll by gun-related crimes numbers over 40,000 a year in the U.S. and all sorts of crimes stalk its land bragged as the “world of civilization” by itself.

The U.S. must face international investigation and own responsibility for its hideous human rights abuses and violation.

We have already made it clear that we will counter in the strongest terms whoever encroaches upon the dignity of our supreme leadership, which is more valuable than our lives and which is the most sacred to us, whether it is big or small.

However, the U.S. has now insulted the dignity of our supreme leadership. This becomes an evident sign that it is girding itself up for an all-out showdown with the DPRK, and this is also a clear answer to how we should approach the new administration in the U.S.

For us, human rights precisely mean state sovereignty.

As the U.S. openly expressed its intention to stifle the DPRK with a “resolute deterrence”, denying our ideology and social system and abusing the “human rights” as a tool for interference in our internal affairs and a political weapon for overturning our social system, we will be forced to take corresponding measures.

We have warned the U.S. sufficiently enough to understand that it will get hurt if it provokes us.

The U.S. will surely and certainly regret for acting lightly, defying our warnings.

Statement of DPRK Foreign Ministry Director General of Department of U.S. Affairs

Pyongyang, May 2 (KCNA) — Kwon Jong Gun, director general of the Department of U.S. Affairs of the Foreign Ministry of the DPRK, released the following statement Sunday:

The U.S. chief executive in his first Congressional speech after his inauguration made a slip of tongue about the DPRK again.

That he cited diplomacy and resolute deterrence, calling the DPRK a “serious threat” to the security of the U.S. and the world, was what had already been anticipated as it is a usual story from Americans.

But intolerable is that the U.S. chief executive clarified his DPRK stand this way in his first policy speech.

His statement clearly reflects his intent to keep enforcing the hostile policy toward the DPRK as it had been done by the U.S. for over half a century.

Even American experts comment lots of information about the direction and focus of his DPRK policy review can be obtained from the just one sentence.

It is illogical and an encroachment upon the DPRK’s right to self-defense for the U.S., that had threatened the DPRK through unprecedented vicious hostile policy and constant nuclear blackmail, to call the DPRK’s deterrence for self-defence a “threat”.

The U.S.-claimed “diplomacy” is a spurious signboard for covering up its hostile acts, and “deterrence” touted by it is just a means for posing nuclear threats to the DPRK.

The anti-DPRK nuclear war exercises held by the U.S. soon after the inauguration of the new administration proved in action who really threatens whom on the Korean peninsula and clearly showed that one must build a powerful deterrence to counter the U.S.

The U.S. will face worse and worse crisis beyond control in the near future if it is set to approach the DPRK-U.S. ties, still holding on the outdated policy from Cold War-minded perspective and viewpoint.

It is certain that the U.S. chief executive made a big blunder in the light of the present-day viewpoint.

Now that what the keynote of the U.S. new DPRK policy has become clear, we will be compelled to press for corresponding measures, and with time the U.S. will find itself in a very grave situation.

Statement of Kim Yo Jong, Vice Department Director of WPK Central Committee

Pyongyang, May 2 (KCNA) — Kim Yo Jong, vice department director of the Central Committee of the Workers’ Party of Korea (WPK), issued the following statement Sunday:

“Defectors from the north” in south Korea recently scattered leaflets against the DPRK again, an intolerable provocation against it.

We have already seriously warned the south Korean authorities of consequences their wrong act of giving silent approval to the human wastes’ wild moves will bring to the north-south relations.

However, the south Korean authorities again did not stop the reckless acts of the “defectors from the north”, winking at them.

Displeasure can not be hidden over such sordid acts.

We regard the maneuvers committed by the human wastes in the south as a serious provocation against our state and will look into corresponding action.

Whatever decision we make and whatever actions we take, the responsibility for the consequences thereof will entirely rest with the south Korean authorities who stopped short of holding proper control of the dirty human scum.

We can no longer remain an onlooker.
