âU.S. emerged as a result of genocideâ?- Kim Jong-il

“Sinister plots are continuously being hatched by U.S. intelligence agencies”
The six parties, involving China, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), the United States, Republic of Korea (ROK), Russia and Japan, held their first chief negotiators’ meeting at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse last week. And just as the Talks were about to begin, Kim Jong-il issued an article stating that âAmerica’s legacy of slavery makes it inappropriate for Washington to comment on North Korea’s human rights recordâ?, citing the U.S. âCuban Adjustment Act.
KCNA, the North Korea’s Communist Party newspaper even said that North Koreans are being kidnapped by American intelligence agencies.
The Cuban President Fidel Castro has recently charged that thereâs an organization in the U.S. that operates a global human trafficking network.
Castro accused the United States of being responsible for the scourge. He described the U.S. “Cuban Adjustment Act” as âmurderous,â? claiming huge casualties over the last four decades.
The Kim Jong-il regime charged that the âUnited States was built as a result of genocide, and is the world’s biggest human rights abuser as it has profited from centuries of slavery and trafficking in flesh. And this inglorious history has hardly come to an end.â?
âContemporary American forms of massacre and human trafficking are rife in Iraq and various other countries.â?
âSinister plots are continuously being hatched by U.S. intelligence agencies to spirit North Korean citizens away to other countries.
âWashington’s unethical human rights policies have similarly taken the lives of dozens of Cubans when they sought to emigrate to the U.S. This was also part of their plan.â?
âThis proves that the blame for “human trafficking” and “human rights abuse,” so publicized by Washington, rests with the U.S. itself, which is the root cause of disaster, misfortune and social evil worldwide.â?
âDespite these hard facts, every year Washington is shameless enough to release a report on human trafficking and human rights, in which it assesses the human rights performance of over 100 countries. In particular, its accusing finger is pointed at socialist and independent countries. So it stitched together the âNorth Korean Human Rights Act,â the âCuban Adjustment Actâ and other acts in a bid to justify its human rights policy and âregime changeâ for independent, anti-imperialist countries like Cuba and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. The recent appointment of Washington’s envoy for North Korean Human Rights was a provocative move that is just a part of its plan for âregime changeâ in North Korea.â?
âThe U.S. continues to behave as though it were a proper judge of human rights, although it is cursed and censured around the world as the kingpin of human trafficking and human rights abuse. This is folly that could only come from a country as politically and morally vulgar as America.â?
âBy nature, socialist societies don’t allow human rights abuses like human trafficking to exist. The U.S. should be aware of this.â?
The main provisions of law number 89, known as the Cuban Adjustment Act adopted by the U.S. congress in 1966 under the Lyndon Johnson administration, was to make it easier for Cubans who flee the island to obtain permanent resident status and citizenship in the United States.
As a matter of fact the phenomenon of human trafficking originated in the United States, stated Kim Jong-il.
Immigration has been one of the U.S.âs oldest weapons in its dirty war against Cuba, Ricardo Alarcon, the former Cuban ambassador was once quoted as saying.
How often have we heard or seen on the news about a new boat people escaping from the regime, fleeing Cuba to be free? The fact of the matter is that behind all the melodramatics played out by the press, the main reason behind Cuban immigration is economy. It has very little to do with politics and very much to do with the degrading living standards in Cuba, as a result of the U.S. embargo, which forces the island to purchase some international goods and medicine sometimes at 3 or 4 times the going rate.
The embargo, which also curtails foreign investment in the island, not only increases the economic woes of Cuba but also increases the number of people fleeing the island.
It is unclear which âorganization in the U.S.â? the article was referring to.
