The spokesperson for the National Coordination Committee of the DPRK for Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism issued the following statement on Sunday:
The United States and other hostile forces are now spreading ill-hearted rumors that we have illegally forced the transfer of two billion US dollars needed for the development of WMD programs by involving cyber actors.
A question being raised is on such fabricated information, unreasonably accusing us with no scientific ground, reflected even in the Midterm Report of the Panel of Experts of the Sanctions Committee against the DPRK, the UN Security Council, which we have never ever recognized.
The fabrication of such a sheer lie by the ringleaders of cyber crime and all other crimes is quite an absurd act aimed at re-enacting the same old trick as the Hitler fascist propagandists used to cling to, often saying “Tell a lie a hundred times and it will pass as a truth.”
Such a fabrication by the hostile forces is nothing but a sort of a nasty game aimed at tarnishing the image of our Republic and finding justification for sanctions and pressure campaign against the DPRK.
We hereby warn that we will never ever tolerate any impudent act which impairs the dignity of our state and therefore, we will calculate, once and for all, the acts committed.
