Pyongyang, July 23 (KCNA) — Rodong Sinmun today in a by-lined article calls for not allowing the imperialists to apply the double standards but rejecting them to establish a new fair international order and develop the international relations on a sound basis.
It is a criminal act of violating the principle of impartiality in the international ties to apply the double standards.
The U.S. is chiefly to blame for pursuing a blatant double-dealing policy.
It has applied diverse standards when dealing with international issues and internal affairs of other countries. Its standards vary according to its interests and the stance of the relevant countries towards it and their political systems.
This is well illustrated by the double standards applied by the U.S. in handling human rights issues.
It is well known that the U.S. styling itself a “human rights judge” issues a “human rights report” every year to pull up other countries over their human rights performance and meddle in their internal affairs.
The double standards applied by the U.S. over human rights issues find a vivid manifestation in the fact that it is directing the spearhead of its “human rights offensive” to those countries standing in the way of establishing an order for its world domination such as anti-imperialist and independent ones and those countries of military strategic and economic importance. The U.S. is, however, keeping mum about the poor human rights records in its allies and those countries that toe its line.
It is also applying the double standards as regards the nuclear issue. The Bush ruling quarters are going busy with the moves to modernize and bolster its nuclear arsenal, while paying lip- service to the “reduction of nukes.” The U.S. seeks to use nukes like conventional weapons any time after designating the DPRK and other countries as targets of its preemptive nuclear attacks. It is clearly evidenced by its stepped-up moves to make nukes smaller and less heavy. In the meantime, it is zealously patronizing and backing Japan, Israel and other allies in their moves to go nuclear.
The U.S. is applying the double standards as regards the “anti-terrorism war”. This can be explained well by the fact that the U.S. is defending terrorist outfits and terrorists in some countries after classifying terrorists into “good ones” and “bad ones.”
The above-said standards applied by the U.S. over international issues are nothing but an illegal political lever for turning the world into the one dominated by it.
