KCNA: "Those countries and forces kowtowing to the U.S. would be well advised to live in their senses, not joining the anachronistic farce against the DPRK committed under the signboard of 'human rights protection' if they have a shred of conscience or cool-headedness."
KCNA: "The U.S. should properly understand the strategic position of the DPRK and face up to the changed trend of the times and behave with decorum, not to take issue with others for no reason. This is the way out to escape gloomy future."
KCNA: "The 'human rights issue in north Korea' much touted by the U.S. is unrealistic and groundless sophism. All of them are based on the rubbish of the human scum who ran away after committing unpardonable crimes."
KCNA: "Recently the U.S. let the Human Rights Watch, a plot-breeding organization, make public a groundless 'report' that sexual abuses against women are prevailing in the DPRK. At the same time the U.S. is inciting an atmosphere of hostility toward the DPRK."
KCNA: "The U.S. is making a slushy farce even when its hostile policy toward the DPRK called the 'human rights in north' results in failure."
