North Korea’s Foreign Ministry called the US war in Afghanistan a “human rights crime” and said the US should pay the price for it.

On Sunday, the ministry posted a message titled “Human rights crimes committed by the US must be calculated” on its website. “The crimes in which the US slandered innocent people from all over the world while wearing the veils of human rights judges must be calculated,” it said.

North Korea has used the expression “calculate” to mean tallied up to determine the price to be paid.

The ministry added that there were growing calls worldwide for the US military to pay for the atrocities perpetrated against the innocent people of Afghanistan.

It cited recent references to Afghanistan by officials or local media from China, Japan and Iran.
