SEOUL: North Korea denounced the new US special envoy on the country’s human rights issues, Julie Turner, as a “wicked” person who has resorted to “mudslinging” while interfering in other countries’ internal affairs.

Turner, former director of the State Department’s Office of East Asia and the Pacific in the Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor, was nominated by President Joe Biden to the position in January and confirmed last week by the Senate.

An unnamed spokesperson of what North Korea’s state media called the Association for Human Rights Studies said Turner had earned “notoriety” for “mudslinging” over human rights issues and “spitting out coarse invective” against the country.

“Her absurd remarks are grumbles of a human rights abuser embodying the inveterate bad habit of the US which revels in meddling in the internal affairs of a sovereign state,” the spokesperson said.
