North Korea has petitioned the U.N. Security Council to look into the CIA’s so-called “brutal medieval” treatment of terrorism suspects, as described in the Democrat-fueled report released by the Senate.

The request comes as Pyongyang faces a possible international court hearing over the nation’s own human rights record, The Washington Post reported.

“The so-called ‘human rights issue’ in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is politically fabricated and therefore, it is not at all relevant to the regional or international peace and security,” said Ja Song-nam, North Korea’s ambassador to the United Nations, in a letter to Chad’s ambassador, The Post reported.

“On the contrary, the recently revealed CIA torture crimes committed by the United States, which has been conducted worldwide in the most brutal medieval forms, are the gravest human rights violations in the world,” he said, The Associated Press reported.

Mr. Ja asked the Security Council to investigate the issue as “a thorough probe into the CIA torture crimes,” the media outlet said.
