THE UNITED NATIONS, December 25. /TASS/. Pyongyang promises no “physical reaction” but only a verbal condemnation to the release in the US of The Interview, a comedy film about a CIA plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-un, a North Korean diplomat said.
Sony Pictures Entertainment released the movie on Wednesday. Last week, the company cancelled the premiere after several cinema chains refused to screen the film amid threats from hacker group the Guardians of Peace.
The group, which the FBI believes has ties to North Korea, hacked the computer systems of parent company Sony Pictures Entertainment in November. Pyongyang denied its involvement in the hacking.
North Korea’s Foreign Ministry earlier promised counter-measures if Washington backed the release of the film which it said would become a clear manifestation of terrorism and military action aimed at overthrowing the country’s government.
