North Korea blasts U.N. human rights resolution as 'grave infringement' on sovereignty

[UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in North Korea, Tomás Ojea Quintana attends a press conference after delivering his report before the Human Right Council, on March 9, 2020 in Geneva. (File photo by=AFP)] SEOUL: North Korea on Sunday blasted a recent United Nations resolution condemning Pyongyang's human rights abuses, calling it "a product of illegal and inhuman hostile policy" of Washington against the communist nation. The U.N. Human Rights Council (UNHRC) passed the resolution for the 20th consecutive year on Friday. The resolution condemned the North's continued rights violations and highlighted worsening humanitarian conditions amid the coronavirus pandemic. North Korea's foreign ministry issued a statement on Sunday to reject the resolution, condemning it as "a grave infringement upon the sovereignty of our state and a political provocation against it." "As the fair and impartial international society recognize, the anti-DPRK human rights resolution put forward by the U.S. and the Western countries every year does not bear any relation to genuine human rights," read the ministry's English-language statement carried by the official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). The ministry also said institutional human rights violations, such as racial discrimination and violence against women, are rampant in the U.S. and other Western states, and added it was hypocritical of them to pose as "human rights judges" on North Korea. "The DPRK will show zero tolerance for hostile acts by the U.S. and its followers," the ministry added. "And it will do its level best to safeguard our socialist system and the genuine people's rights which our people value as their life."

(File photo by=KCNA / VIA REUTERS)] WASHINGTON: The United States on Friday imposed fresh sanctions on five North Korean entities involved in the North's recent missile tests that included its first intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) launch in over four years.The five entities include the North's Ministry of Rocket Industry (MoRI), according to the Department of the Treasury. "Today's action targets a DPRK WMD research and development organization that is directly linked to the development of new ICBMs, along with four of its revenue-generating subsidiaries," the department said in a press release. North Korea launched an apparent ICBM last Thursday, ending its self-imposed moratorium on long-range missile testing that had been in place since November 2017.The treasury department noted two North Korean missile tests, staged Feb. 27 and March 5 (Seoul time), had also been related to testing a new ICBM system, as earlier identified by the U.S. intelligence community.The five entities added to the Office of Foreign Assets Control's list include four subsidiaries of the North Korean rocket industry ministry. They are Hapjanggang Trading Corporation, Korea Rounsan Trading Corporation, Sungnisan Trading Corporation and Unchon Trading Corporation. "These trading companies have pursued various activities likely aimed at generating revenue for MoRI," said the press release, adding that such activities included establishing joint ventures in North Korea, pursuing large-scale projects with Chinese firms and exporting North Korean labor.

North Korea leader urges 'ideological offensive' by propaganda officials

(File photo by=Reuters)] SEOUL: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un took a commemorative photo in person with the participants of a workshop of the ruling party's propaganda officials and called for accelerated "revolution through a powerful ideological offensive," according to the country's state media Friday. Apparently, Kim paid keen attention to the workshop, which opened in Pyongyang on Monday and brought together officials in the "information field" of the Workers' Party of Korea. He sent a letter to the attendees on the first day of the event and met with them for the photo session Thursday, according to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA). He expressed "belief that the participants in the workshop would hold fast to the Juche theory of giving importance to ideology as the motive force of innovation, creation, and advance and dynamically accelerate our revolution through a powerful ideological offensive," the KCNA reported. Juche means self-reliance. The workshop was held at a time when the Kim regime is intensifying its provocative stance, highlighted by the launch of a long-range missile last week. The North has often sought to tighten social discipline and rally internal unity in the face of growing pressure from the international community over its provocations leading to the escalation of regional tensions.
