Pyongyang, January 11 (KCNA) -- A spokesman for the Korean Council of Religionists issued a statement Thursday over the fact that the Trump group of the U.S. started a smear campaign against the DPRK under the pretext of "religious issue" from the outset of the new year.
The statement said:
The U.S. State Department in a statement of its spokesman on Jan. 4 re-listed the DPRK as a "state of special concerns for religious freedom" where "religious freedom" is seriously encroached upon.
This is the last-ditch efforts of those lost to senses, being taken aback by the DPRK's successful completion of its state nuclear force, and it is part of the vicious smear campaign to tarnish the dignity of the DPRK and its drastically enhanced strategic position over the religious issue.
The U.S. is a matchless monster state, the world's biggest rogue state devoid of any right and face to talk about religious freedom.
The religionists of the DPRK consider the U.S. to be a group of Satans and Asuras as it barbarously bombed and destroyed religious facilities in Korea like churches, Buddhist temples and cathedrals and mercilessly massacred a large number of religionists.
During the last Korean War, thousands of religious facilities that had existed in the northern half of Korea were leveled by the barbarous bombardment of the U.S. who often advocates "religious freedom" and hundreds of thousands of innocent believers were ruthlessly massacred by the American ogres.
The U.S. is keen on getting braced for a nuclear war against the DPRK while openly calling for "total destruction" of the DPRK and "extermination of the nation", thereby seriously threatening the sacred cradle of the religious life of the believers in the DPRK.
The U.S. is trying hard to insult the dignified DPRK and shake the faith of the believers in the DPRK while trumpeting about the "religious freedom". But it is nothing but an anachronistic wild dream.
The faith and will of the believers of the Republic who trust and follow the great leader, Heaven of Korea, as savior of the destiny remain unchanged and they are unbreakable.
The U.S. has to immediately stop the mean and vicious act of finding fault with the DPRK, being pursuant to the anachronistic hostile policy toward it.
The Korean Council of Religionists will strongly counter the U.S. ferocious tyranny and hostile policy toward the DPRK in solidarity with the religionists of different countries valuing love, peace and justice, in the future, too.
