[Seoul 1st Reuters]-North Korea denied the UN report that it raised $ 2 billion in funds through cyber attacks on financial institutions and cryptocurrency (virtual currency) exchanges on the 1st. Accused the United States of being spreading.
A report that Reuters got last month pointed out that North Korea has used a “broader and more sophisticated” cyber attack to illegally obtain $ 2 billion to develop weapons of mass destruction.
Korea Central News Agency (KCNA) quoted a statement by the spokesman for the National Coordinating Committee for money laundering and anti-terrorist funding support: “The United States and other hostile forces are now spreading malicious rumor. "These deceptions are nothing more than a sneaky game aimed at undermining our image and justifying sanctions and pressure on our country."
On August 31, North Korea's foreign secretary said that expectations for the talks with the US government were far from it, and condemned the recent “behavior of North Korean rogues” by US Secretary of State Pompeo.
