PYONGYANG, Aug. 27 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) accused South Korea on Tuesday of promoting a "law on human rights in the DPRK," describing the act as chilling the atmosphere of inter-Korean dialogue.
"These moves cannot be construed otherwise than reckless acts of chilling the hard-won atmosphere of dialogue between the two as they are a revelation of extreme confrontation with fellow countrymen," the official KCNA news agency said in a commentary.
If one party does not recognize the ideology and social system of the other party but persists in the hostile acts of slandering and hurting it, not only the inter-Korean relations but the situation on the Korean Peninsula will get further strained, the commentary said.
The so-called "human rights" issues touted by the hostile forces are being censured by relevant countries and their people as "they are all aimed to openly interfere in the ideologies and social systems of sovereign states and change their regimes," KCNA said.
It warned that history and the nation will "never remain a passive onlooker to any act of chilling the atmosphere of peace and dialogue on the Korean Peninsula."
The United Nations Human Rights Council, which has sent a fact-finding team to South Korea to investigate the human rights records in the DPRK, was requested to present a report on the DPRK to its 25th session in March 2014.
