Spokesman: U.S. using human rights to isolate North Korea

Pyongyang speaking out against human rights push prior to UN vote at General Assembly

A spokesman for North Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has criticized the U.S. for taking issue with the country’s human rights issues in a question-and-answer session with a North Korean reporter.

The statement, which was posted on Naenara, took issue with recent statements by American officials for trying to “justify” U.S. attempts to “isolate" North Korea by bringing up the human rights issue.
