North Korea on US decision on fixing Kuds (Jerusalem) as capital of Israel

U.S. and Its Followers' Anti-DPRK "Human Rights" Racket under Fire

Pyongyang, December 9 (KCNA) -- The Human Rights Institute of the DPRK Academy of Social Sciences issued a white paper Saturday to clarify who has defended human rights and who has violated them on the earth, based on the comprehensive study into the human rights situation on a worldwide scale for the past nearly seven decades since the adoption of the World Declaration of Human Rights.

The DPRK is a country where genuine human rights are firmly protected and successfully put into practice as the working masses' democratic freedom and rights are most thoroughly defended and most brilliantly realized, the white paper says, and goes on:

The most popular human rights system under socialism that was established in the DPRK consists of the human rights legal system which has codified the human rights, independent rights to be exercised by the people in all fabrics of social life including politics, economy and culture, the regular state mechanism which helps people thoroughly realize their independent rights and the system for education and promotion of human rights.

The human rights policy and human rights laws in force in the human rights system under socialism in our country, the human rights policies and the activities conducted by state organizations for ensuring human rights, and education and promotion of human rights being conducted in our country fully comply with the unanimous desire and wish of mankind for genuine human rights. Many state-sponsored measures and steps being undertaken in several fields of social life including education far surpass the requirements stipulated in the World Declaration of Human Rights and the international human rights documents which have specified it.

Imperialism which emerged as the vicious violator of freedom, equality, democracy and human rights can not exist even a moment without the violation of human rights, from its aggressive and predatory nature to enslave humankind.

Such nature of imperialism has found its vivid manifestation in its actions throughout history since the adoption of the World Declaration of Human Rights.

The imperialist countries like U.S., Britain and France opposed the call of socialist countries for including rights to labor and rest and social security in the World Declaration of Human Rights, but tried to include the contents of bourgeois human rights documents like the American Declaration of Independence and French Declaration of Human Rights in the World Declaration of Human Rights. The U.S. and other imperialist countries in Western Europe, in particular, went vicious to delete expressions and phrases that can stand in their way of violating the democratic freedom and rights of the popular masses.

Even after the adoption of the World Declaration of Human Rights, the U.S. and other imperialist countries stood in every way against the preparation and adoption of international legal codes concerning human rights aimed at specifying the contents of the World Declaration of Human Rights as the legal obligation of individual states, and denied their implementation under unwarranted reason and pretext, thereby hindering the realization of human rights of popular masses and the guarantee of human rights worldwide.

Yet, they tried to give impression that they are most concerned about guarantee of human rights in countries and nations, while styling themselves "human rights champions".

The U.S. is styling itself a "human rights judge" while estimating and finding fault with human rights performance in each country. It is spreading such doctrines as "theory of prioritizing human rights" and "theory of interference from humanitarianism", and "theory of diplomacy for human rights". But they are sophism to justify its aggression, interference and violation of human rights under the signboard of "defense of human rights".

The U.S. committed innumerable wars of aggression, schemes to topple governments and interference in other countries' internal affairs, letting out such sophism.

In the present world where the imperialists go on the rampage, committing aggression, war and high-handed and arbitrary practices, the only way for safeguarding the sovereignty of countries and nations and to defend rights of people is to bolster the military force.

Now that the U.S. imperialists and its followers are challenging the efforts for realizing genuine human rights and are strengthening domination and interference moves, it is of great significance to realize international solidarity and cooperation in the field of human rights.

The realization of genuine human rights in the world requires active efforts of the UN and the human rights-related international organizations whose basic mission and duty are to ensure human rights.

Human rights represent the justice and desire of mankind and the world where genuine human rights are realized is sure to be built through the dynamic struggle of countries and nations for defending independence. -0-

The ancestral mountain Paektu covered with white snow was displaying marvelous scene with glee at the reappearance of its great master.

When Kim Jong Un ascended to the top of it, going through thick snow, it showed fine weather unprecedented in the blizzard of December winter, exposing its majestic figure.

As if to give warm welcome to him who brought the "great November event" of the great Korea and show joy at the appearance of the peerlessly illustrious commander who controls the nature, the heart of the ever-changing Lake Chon on the top of Mt Paektu presented charming scenery showing magic peaks and dazzling sunshine on its clear and blue waves.

Imposingly standing on Janggun Peak, the respected Supreme Leader gave a familiar look for a while at the dizzy cliffs and the sea of trees, recalling the emotion-charged days when he realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force without yielding even a moment and with the indomitable faith and will of Paektu.

He said that the monument to Mt Paektu and education compound should be spruced up suited to the dignity of the holy mountain of revolution and "Mt Paektu, the holy mountain of revolution", an autograph of leader Kim Jong Il, should be displayed better heavily and politely to be seen most clearly anytime and anywhere.

He stressed the need to build a new hotel well around the Paektu Station for the convenience of those who visit Mt Paektu as well as convenient facilities for making them have photos taken at several places where a bird's-eye view of the mountain can be obtained and have rests.

The third leg of his guidance was the renovated Samjiyon Town General Store.

Going round different parts of the store visited by Kim Il Sung in July 1979, he learned about its renovation.

Noting that each counter is full of quality homemade goods diverse in variety, he stressed the need to pay deep attention to steadily improving the method of displaying goods.

He went round the newly-built dwelling houses in the town.

He said that the dwelling houses have been built well to be clean and cosy to suite the regional features, adding that their owners would like them.

Then he gave field guidance to Samjiyon Youth Railway Station and Lake Samjiyon Shore Railway Station which are nearing completion.

Pointing out that the stations have been built in a modern style to suite the mountainous area as befitting the gateway to Samjiyon County, a sacred place of revolution, he said that every element should be built more perfectly, the interior and exterior construction done more carefully and good preparations made to operate the stations the moment the study tour of revolutionary battle sites starts next year.

He stressed that the force and means should be concentrated on stepping up the construction of dwelling houses for evacuees and new dwelling houses around the Hyesan-Samjiyon railway section to finish them as early as possible.

Besides, the Supreme Leader made a field survey of the work of various sectors in the county.

Looking at the model board showing the general plan for building Samjiyon County, he gave important instructions that would serve as the guidelines in sprucing up the county.

He stressed that the thorough preparations should be made to build Samjiyon County, mental native place of our people, into a county impeccable in the world, a peculiar one that others can not imitate and the best county in the country.

The Hyesan-Samjiyon railway project is near to completion and miraculous successes are being made in construction projects despite the bitter cold of the Paektu area thanks to the dynamic struggle of the builders of the 216 Division, the Supreme Leader said. He instructed to significantly review the first-stage campaign over the successes, experience and lessons that have been gained till now so as to correctly set the future project orientation and launch the second-stage campaign all at once after making perfect preparations.

While inspecting Samjiyon County, he was very deeply impressed to personally see the builders devoting their burning loyalty to the construction of the county after leaving their dear houses and families, he said, adding that he could not repress his feelings to meet all the builders one by one and hold their hands warmly. He earnestly requested the officials to convey the militant greetings to the builders in the name of the Party Central Committee.

He expressed expectation and belief that all the builders and people of the county involved in the construction of Samjiyon County would fully discharge their honorable mission and duty in a drive to wonderfully turn the county where the revolution started into an icon and model county of the whole country and the best mountainous city in the world, as intended by the Party.
