Pyongyang, July 7 (KCNA) — The Japanese reactionaries have become persistent in their attempts to internationalize the “abduction issue.”
Suffice it to recall what Japanese Foreign Minister Machimura said at the recent meeting of foreign ministers of G-8 nations.
Bringing forward the “abduction issue” again there, he urged the international community to “jointly handle the issue of north Korea’s human rights abuse.”
This is part of the anti-DPRK ruckus kicked up by the Japanese reactionaries in their bid to internationalize the “abduction issue” and create an atmosphere of pressure upon the DPRK and a foolish attempt to cover up their past crimes.
The “abduction issue” much touted by Japan has already been settled with the publication of the DPRK-Japan Pyongyang Declaration and through two visits to Pyongyang by the Japanese prime minister and the DPRK has done what it should do in this regard.
This is a hard fact but Japan is crying over the “abduction issue” even in the international arena outside Japan. This clearly shows how far their impudence and moral vulgarity have reached.
Japan has already been recorded as the world’s biggest war criminal state with the worst record of abduction cases for the hideous anti-human crimes it had committed against Koreans and other Asian people in the past century.
Yet, it does not bother to kidnap and abduct people of other countries, staging one “abduction” drama after another stunning the world people. The Japanese reactionaries’ abduction of DPRK citizens, in particular, is well organized and premeditated in its scale and nature and most dastardly and malicious in its means and methods.
Japanese woman residing in the DPRK An Phil Hwa revealed detailed facts in this regard before domestic and foreign reporters after her return to the DPRK in April.
It is the height of sarcasm for Japan to talk about the DPRK’s “abduction issue,” as it is a master hand in abduction with a century-long criminal record.
Japan was and is the assailant and the DPRK the victim as regards the “abduction issue.”
Japan has played wicked games to politicize and internationalize the “abduction issue”, raising a terrific outcry over it whenever an opportunity presented itself. But this is nothing but a clumsy trick of a brutal assailant to paint himself as an innocent “victim” and thus cover up his crimes and evade the settlement of the past.
What is left to be done by the Japanese politicians is to make a sincere apology and compensation for the hideous human rights abuses committed by Japan against the Koreans in the past, in conformity with the spirit of the DPRK-Japan Pyongyang Declaration.
