Pyongyang, November 28 (KCNA) -- The spokesman for the Foreign Ministry of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea gave the following answer to a question put by KCNA on Friday as regards the ever-mounting protests against racial discrimination in the U.S.:

After the Missouri State judicial authorities of the U.S. on Nov. 24 decided not to indict a white policeman who shot a black young man to death three months ago, protests against racism took place once again, rapidly spilling over into at least 170 cities across the U.S., including New York and Los Angeles. This is a clear proof of the real picture of the U.S. as tundra of human rights where extreme racial discrimination acts are openly practiced.

As regards the incident, U.S. President Obama let loose a spate of irresponsible remarks that the U.S. is a country built by law and it is necessary to accept the decision of the judicial authorities only to spark off bitterer resentment among the protesters.

Whenever an opportunity presents itself, the U.S. authorities bluster that the human rights of all people are guaranteed in the U.S. in a legal and institutional manner and only individual cases contrary to them occur sometimes.

But such individual human rights abuses are taking place one after another and have reached a systematic and wide-ranging and extremely grave phase. The occurrence of nationwide protests at present goes to prove that the U.S. human rights regime is beset with serious problems.

The U.S. president in his public appearance tried hard to justify the clear racial discrimination by law, an indication that the U.S. human rights standard is wrong.

Such human rights standard of the U.S. is censured by the whole of the international community including its allies.

Great irony is that the U.S. tries to measure other countries with its wrong human rights standard though it is a typical human rights abuser.

The DPRK will preserve only its own standard from A to Z under any circumstances to further protect and promote the human rights of its people.
