North Korea says the european migrant crisis is the fault of the U.S.

North Korea have condemned and blamed the U.S. for the current migrant crisis in Europe. 

They have said that the U.S. is an “evil empire” which triggered the worst refugee crisis since World War II.

A spokesperson for North Korea told the KCNA news agency that “The US is an evil empire… committing all sorts of human rights abuses,” reports:

As an example, the spokesman cited the plight of the hundreds of thousands of migrants from war zones like Syria and Afghanistan who are seeking shelter in European countries.

“It is the US which caused the serious refugee issue sweeping the whole of Europe,” he said.

“As the US started wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and other parts of the world, and fostered civil wars under the pretexts of `war on terrorism` and establishment of `democracy,` refugees have been on a sharp increase,” he added.

North Korea, by contrast was a “cradle of happy life”, the spokesman said.

The statement was a response to a recent discussion of North Korean rights violations at the Human Rights Council in Geneva.

A report published last year by a special UN commission accused North Korea of committing human rights violations “without parallel in the contemporary world.”
