In an interesting turn of events this morning, North Korea has accused the Government of United States of America of being directly involved in the production of the comic movie The Interview.
According to a report published by a local news agency, KCNA, the North Korean Government claims to have “clear evidence” regarding the direct involvement of the U.S. Government in the production of “The Interview” which is “an extremely dishonest reactionary movie“.
The report further states that North Korea is “fully ready to stand in confrontation with the U.S. in all war spaces, including cyber warfare space to blow up those citadels.”
It goes on, “Our toughest counteraction will be boldly taken against the White House, the Pentagon and the whole U.S. mainland, the cesspool of terrorism.”
Sony Pictures Entertainment produced The Interview and North Korea claims the U.S. government was involved in making the film, which is about a Kim Jong-un assassination plot.
After being pegged by the FBI (for hacking Sony Entertainment last November) on Friday, the North Korean government had denied their involvement in the cyber attack and had duly proposed a “joint investigation” offering full co-operation and adding a hint about “facing serious consequences on failure to accept the offer.”
President Obama had expressed his concerns about Sony caving in by canceling the release of the movie and had called it a “mistake.”
