Honour among thieves, or the long overdue DPRK update

From the usual place:

"Kim Yong Nam, president of the Presidium of the DPRK Supreme People's Assembly, Tuesday sent a congratulatory message to Hamid Karzai upon his reelection as President of Afghanistan.
Extending congratulations to Karzai upon his reelection as President of Afghanistan, Kim in the message wished him success in his work".


At least Karzai allowed the opposition to mount a campaign, I suppose.

Meanwhile, some freshly minted figures of speech in a denunciation of the US for calling the DPRK on 'human rights'

Sometimes the truth emerges from unlikely sources:


"We do not know what is the West's conception of human rights. But such "human rights issue" touted by the West has (sic) never existed in the DPRK and it cannot exist here".

"[The US] pin hope on the "human rights" strategy like a drowning man trying to catch a straw. 

"Its attempt to do harm to the DPRK through such long-bankrupt "human rights offensive" is as foolish an act as trying to sweep the sea with a broom". 

Meanwhile, overweening ambition corner:

The DPRK has produced many students with brilliant mathematical talent.

Among them is Ri Un Song of Pyongyang Secondary School No. 1 who bagged gold medals two times running in the 49th IMO for 2008 and 50th IMO for 2009 held in Germany in July.He likes composition and reading and is good at physical culture. It is his hope to become a competent scientist.
