The authorities welcomed the US leaders to come and check whether North Korea has any biological weapons, and to get acquainted with the situation of human rights in the country, Yonhap reported.
According to the official representative of the North Korean Defense Committee, US officials will be able to see firsthand the “mysterious Pyongyang University of Biotechnology”. “They will also see a society in which human rights are truly guaranteed,” the official said.
On July 12 the DPRK Permanent Representative to the United Nations accused Washington of attempting to use a biological weapon against Pyongyang in the event of war on the Korean peninsula.
The representative demanded an investigation into the anthrax sample which was sent from the US to South Korea. In May, the Pentagon admitted that it accidentally sent a sample of anthrax to the US Air Force base in South Korea.
Washington and Seoul are currently conducting an investigation on this matter.
