ICP, 2 February 2018
As the cyber attack accusations turned out to be false, Workers Party of Korea released a commentary on January 29th, rebuking the hostility of US and its allies such as Britain against DPRK and their misleading accusations of DPRK being involved in cyber attacks.
Pyongyang reminded of the hack against US intelligence and security officials when mounting personal data was disclosed including emails, which by then was linked to North Korea by US. As the cyber attack accusations turned out to be false, and an 18-year old British citizen was charged to have hacked email services of US information services and FBI, Workers Party of Korea released a commentary, rebuking the hostility of US and its allies such as Britain against DPRK and their misleading accusations of DPRK being involved in cyber attacks.
The commentary reminded of a cyber attack that rendered British national health system dysfunctional last year upon which British officers claimed Korea faulty, without any evidence, and noted that “Whenever cyber attacks take place worldwide, the U.S. and other hostile forces mislead the public, linking the cases with the DPRK for no ground”. Such false allegations prompted reflection from the Party, which on the contrary, called US as “the kingdom of cyber crimes” and alleged US of being involved in cyber warfare with organized units for decades and “regarding the cyberspace as the 5th domain for the global domination next to sky, land, sea, outer space from long ago”. The commentary followed with stating that together with “nuclear stick and dollars”, US is utilizing cyber space for its hegemonic purposes, targeting anti-US countries such as DPRK or its potential rivals in the imperialist system including Russia and China. WPK’s note ended with a sharp remark advising “The U.S. and its followers such as Britain had better mind their own businesses rather than provoking other countries over cyber attack.”
Pyongyang, reported on February 1 that, Ri Yong Ho, minister of Foreign Affairs of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, on Wednesday sent a letter on the issue to Antonio Manuel de Oliveira Guterres, secretary general of the United Nations.
