U.N. "unreasonably criticizes" North Korea according to China

The U.N. released a 372-page report on human right abuses in North Korea which including claims of "extermination, murder, enslavement, torture, imprisonment, rape ... and the inhumane act of knowingly causing prolonged starvation." North Korean security chiefs and possibly Kim Jong-Un could be prosecuted for these human rights abuses. U.N. investigators have told China that they may be "aiding and abetting crimes against humanity" by sending migrants and defectors back to North Korea but China rejects their claims.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying responded to the report by saying, "Of course we cannot accept this unreasonable criticism. We believe that politicizing human rights issues is not conducive towards improving a country's human rights. We believe that taking human rights issues to the International Criminal Court is not helpful to improving a country's human rights situation." And she added that the people illegally crossing the Chinese-Korean border "are not refugees. We term them illegal North Korean migrants"

In a statement in Geneva, North Korea rejected the details in the 372-page report, saying they were based on material faked by hostile forces backed by the United States, the EU and Japan.

China makes a good point on human rights and politics. It's not the government's job to deal with human rights issues. People who "exterminate, murder, enslave, torture..." always stop doing these by themselves. They learn that abusing human rights are bad so they stop and then everyone sings "Kumbaya." Why would you even need the International Criminal Court to deal with this?

And of course this report on human rights abuses in North Korea must be fake. Those evil westerners are always trying to make North Korea look bad. They just somehow fabricated 372 pages on "extermination, rape, murder...". And those defectors like Shin Dong-hyuk don't exist and their so-called testimonies are actually stories written by American agents. Why would the "great" Kim Jong-Un abuse human rights and why would such a "prosperous" country need to resort to something like that? Look at their missile program, it's obvious that North Korea is such a great country. They can't possibly be committing these atrocities.
