More than a month after the hacking of Sony Pictures, the U.S. imposed new sanctions over the weekend on North Korea, the country it believes is responsible for the attack.
And now North Korea has responded to those sanctions calling them hostile among other things.
A spokesperson for the North Korean government told central news agency KCNA, “The policy persistently pursued by the U.S. to stifle the DPRK [Democratic People's Republic of Korea], groundlessly stirring up bad blood toward it, would only harden its will and resolution to defend the sovereignty of the country."
