North Korea’s Kim Jong Un Calls Obama A Monkey Over Release Of “The Interview”

North Korea called President Barack Obama “a
monkey” and blamed the U.S. on Saturday for
shutting down its Internet amid the hacking row
over the comedy “The Interview.”
North Korea has denied involvement in a
crippling cyberattack on Sony Pictures but has
expressed fury over the comedy depicting an
assassination of its leader Kim Jong Un. After
Sony Pictures initially called off the release in a
decision criticized by Obama, the movie has
opened this week.
On Saturday, the North’s powerful National
Defense Commission, the country’s top
governing body led by Kim, said that Obama
was behind the release of “The Interview.” It
described the movie as illegal, dishonest and
reactionary.
“Obama always goes reckless in words and
deeds like a monkey in a tropical forest,” an
unidentified spokesman at the commission’s
Policy Department said in a statement carried
by the official Korean Central News Agency.
“If the U.S. is to persistently insist that the
hacking attack was made by the DPRK, the U.S.
should produce evidence without fail, though
belatedly,” the statement publish by KCNA said.
He also accused Washington for intermittent
outages of North Korea websites this week, after
the U.S. had promised to respond to the Sony
hack.
There was no immediate reaction from the
White House on Saturday.
According to the North Korea commission’s
spokesman, “the U.S., a big country, started
disturbing the Internet operation of major
media of the DPRK, not knowing shame like
children playing a tag.”
The commission said the movie was the results
of a hostile U.S. policy toward North Korea, and
threatened the U.S. with unspecified
consequences.
North Korea and the U.S. remain technically in a
state of war because the 1950-53 Korean War
ended with an armistice, not a peace treaty. The
rivals also are locked in an international
standoff over the North’s nuclear and missile
programs and its alleged human rights abuses.
The U.S. stations about 28,500 troops in South
Korea as deterrence against North Korean
aggression.
