North Korea has said US President Barack Obama is “recklessly” spreading rumors of a Pyongyang-orchestrated cyberattack on Sony pictures and warned of strikes in opposition to “the whole US mainland, that cesspool of terrorism.”

Pyongyang namely threatened the White house and the Pentagon in a long remark from the highly effective nationwide safety commission late on Sunday.

Such North Korean rhetoric all the way through instances of high rigidity with Washington is routine. however it also underscores the country’s sensitivity over a film whose plot specializes in the assassination of chief Kim Jong-un.

the usa blames North Korea for the cyberattack that escalated to threats of terror attacks in opposition to US movie theaters and caused Sony to cancel “The Interview’s” release.

the us is now taking into account whether to position North Korea again on its record of state sponsors of terror, Obama said on Sunday.

“We’re going to study these through a process that’s already in place,” the president mentioned in an interview aired on Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union”.

“And we don’t make those judgments simply in response to the information of the day. we look systematically at what’s been accomplished and in keeping with those data, we’ll make these determinations at some point.”
