FM Spokesman Flails U.S. Anti-DPRK Moves over Cyber Issue

Date: 21/12/2017 | Source: KCNA.kp (En) | Read original version at source

Pyongyang, December 21 (KCNA) -- A spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea gave the following answer to a question raised by KCNA on December 21 over the fact that the United States is pointing its finger at the DPRK with regard to the issue of cyber-attack:

The United States is now inciting the global confrontation against us by forcibly linking to the DPRK the latest incident of cyber-attack which has given rise to a great international outcry.

The U.S., a source of all social evils and a state of global cyber-crimes, is unreasonably accusing the DPRK without any forensic evidence. This cannot be construed otherwise than an expression of its inveterate repugnance towards the DPRK.

As we have clearly stated on several occasions, we have nothing to do with cyber-attack and we do not feel a need to respond, on a case-by-case basis, to such absurd allegations of the U.S.

However, we can never tolerate the U.S. reckless move of using the issue of cyber-attack for the purpose of making direct accusation against our state.

This move is a grave political provocation by the U.S. aimed at inducing the international society into a confrontation against the DPRK by tarnishing the image of the dignified country and demonizing it, as the U.S. is now driven into a corner as a result of the DPRK's achievement of great cause of completing the state nuclear force. The U.S. move is also a direct challenge to our system and political power.

Crystal clear is the purpose of the U.S. trying to link us to the issue of cyber-attack at this very moment when it is hell-bent on making a harshest "sanctions resolution" against us.

The main ulterior intention of the U.S. is to create an atmosphere of sanctions and pressure against the DPRK by branding the latter as a "criminal state" even in cyber issue, not being content with the nuclear issue and the "human rights issue".

The Trump administration is inciting an extremely confrontational atmosphere by even concocting a plot against us at this delicate moment when the situation on the Korean peninsula is at the crossroads of nuclear war or peace. This only betrays the true colors of the U.S. as the main culprit of the aggravated situation on the Korean peninsula.

We will never tolerate the U.S. reckless moves against the DPRK and make all our efforts for defending our state and system.

We would also warn those countries unreasonably following in the footsteps of the U.S. indulging in the anti-DPRK plots. -0-
