SEOUL, Nov. 23 (Yonhap) -- North Korea lashed out at the Western press for painting the country as a hotbed of illegal drugs after U.S. authorities arrested five people suspected of importing methamphetamine made in the communist country.

In a statement released by the North's foreign ministry spokesman late Thursday, Pyongyang said the recent reports are part of a smear campaign to tarnish the country's image.
