Rodong accuses the U.S. of “fabricating” UN resolution to strengthen sanctions

Seoul also criticized for "tarnishing atmosphere" of improving ties by raising human rights issue

North Korean state newspaper Rodong Sinmun on Tuesday denounced Washington for "fabricating" the UN human rights resolution with the “wicked intention” of strengthening sanctions and pressure.

The report comes following a string of articles released in DPRK state media since last Friday ratcheting up the rhetoric against both the U.S. and South Korea and warning of consequences, in response to the recent adoption of a UN resolution condemning the North Korean human rights situation.
