SEOUL, July 23 (Reuters) – North Korea on Saturday condemned remarks by senior White House officials about Pyongyang’s cyber-attack capabilities and said it would continue to oppose what it called U.S. aggression against North Korea.

A foreign ministry spokesman said the labelling of North Korea as a “criminal group” exposed the nature of Washington’s hostile North Korea policy.

The United States’ deputy national security adviser for cyber and emerging technologies, Anne Newberg, said on Wednesday that North Korea is a criminal group that generates revenue “under the guise of the state.”

North Korea is widely believed to have thousands of trained hackers, and stealing cryptocurrencies has become a major source of funding for sanctioned countries and their weapons programs.

“After all, the U.S. government has revealed the true face of its most despicable hostile policies, which were once covered up by ‘unconditional dialogue’ and ‘diplomatic contacts’,” KCNA quoted a foreign ministry spokesman as saying.

“In a similar fashion, North Korea will face the United States, the world’s only criminal group.”
