North Korea on Saturday accused the US of secretly making preparations to wage a large-scale cyber war on Pyongyang prior to a military attack.
The official Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) and official daily Rodong Sinmun said the US magazine Foreign Policy has disclosed in its February 15 issue that Washington is ramping up its intelligence capabilities to focus on the Korean Peninsula, Xinhua news agency reported.
US agencies like the Central Intelligence Agency have been on standby for the attack for half a year with billions of US dollars invested in the plan and many experts trained for it, they said.
US media outlets like the NBC, Bloomberg News and the Washington Post have been reporting about “cyber terrorism” and “threats” from North Korea which means US war moves against Pyongyang have reached the phase of practical implementation, they said.
The US is sending a large number of cyber warfare experts to the war drills with South Korea, the KCNA said.
