“Wait and See” says North Korea – when asked if Pyongyang was involved in a cyberattack on Sony Pictures Entertainment – ahead of its release of a movie about a plot to kill leader Kim Jong-Un.
When asked about the attack that knocked out the studio’s computer network, a spokesman for North Korea’s U.N. mission replied, ” the hostile forces are relating everything to the DPRK (North Korea)
The reclusive country routinely refers to the U.S.A. and South Korea as “hostile forces.”
North Korea complained to the United Nations in June – about the film starring Seth Rogen and James Franco – and accused the United States of sponsoring terrorism and committing an act of war – by allowing production of the movie.
On Sunday, Rogen tweeted “I personally don’t care if (the movie’s) disrespectful to Kim ..because he’s evil. North Korea’s produced tons of propaganda films that portray America’s destruction.”
