North Korea Opposes Accusations of Stealing $2 Billion From Crypto Exchanges
North Korea has officially denied being the mastermind behind the theft of over $2 billion USD. According to the official state media outlet the country, the allegations that North Korea is behind several thefts from crypto exchanges are false.
This is an answer to United Nations’ Security Council’s claims that the Asian country was using hackers to steal money that would be used to finance the creation of a weapon of mass destruction programs that were led by the government.
The reason why the country is being accused, the North Korean media affirms, is because the United States, which has influence over the United Nations, is a hostile nation that has interests in slandering North Korea. According to a spokesman from North Korea, the propaganda campaigns against the country are nothing new and are being used against the country for decades.
It was also affirmed that the U. N. is using the same kind of dirty tactics that Hitler used before and during World War II to manipulate the citizens.
The original report made by the U. N. was pertaining to several hacks that happened in 17 countries. According to the international organization, 10 of the 35 attacks that were believed to come from North Korea targeted their southern neighbors.
At the time, the experts from the organization affirmed that they were sure that the attacks came from North Korea and that they believed that they were all ordered by the local government.
