A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry issued a statement on October 8, 2016 (Saturday) through DPRK state media about the recent allegation that North Korea abducted an American. The statement said:
Twelve years ago American university student David Sneddon was reported missing in the middle of his journey in the highlands of a country. At that time the country concerned officially notified the U.S. State Department and his family that he might have drowned in a river during his journey.
However, the U.S. has now become groundlessly vocal about the “abduction of the American by north Korea”. This is just a plot hatched by the Obama group, destined to sink like the setting sun due to the total bankruptcy in its hostile policy toward the DPRK, to dramatize the non-existent “human rights issue” of the DPRK and tarnish its international image.
We flatly deny and categorically reject this far-fetched assertion as a swindle which does not deserve even a passing note.
