S. Korean Authorities' Call for "Humanitarianism" Is Hypocritic: News Analyst
Pyongyang, April 8 (KCNA) -- The puppet authorities of south Korea are still making a mockery of the nation, advertising about "humanitarianism".

Its chief executive, Park Geun Hye, slandered the DPRK over "humanitarianism" and "human rights" during her foreign tour, while her hirelings hijacked a DPRK fishing boat in distress due to engine trouble.

Not content with threatening the boat with gunshots, the south Korean navy gangsters committed outrages on its sailors with iron bars and hooks. Furthermore, they forced "defection" upon them.

The outrages clearly reveal sham humanitarianism touted by the south Korean authorities whenever an opportunity presents itself to talk about "human rights."

In actuality the south Korean authorities have no face to talk about humanitarianism since they have done wrongs against it in recent months alone.

It is a well-known fact that the humanitarian work for reunion of separated families and relatives from the north and the south of Korea was suspended last year, due to the improper behavior of the south side, which did not respect its dialogue partner and spoiled the atmosphere for improved north-south relations.

In February this year the DPRK generously agreed to south Korea's proposal for resuming the reunion of separated families and their relatives, out of the desire to alleviate even a bit the sufferings caused by national division.

But, the authorities of south Korea responded to the DPRK's generosity with Key Resolve and Foal Eagle joint military drills aimed at an invasion of it, claiming that they have nothing to do with humanitarian issues.

Even under such situation, the DPRK made sincere efforts for the smooth reunion of separated families and their relatives, prompted by the will to warm up the frozen north-south relations.

Now the south Korean authorities persist in anti-DPRK smear campaign over the "human rights" issue, asserting that the DPRK suffers from "economic difficulties" and "food shortage". This is a last-ditch effort of those upset by the reality of the DPRK steadily making long strides.

The south Korean authorities had better stop talking about "humanitarianism" and mind their own business.
