North Korea, also known as the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), has vowed to develop a missile mounted with a nuclear warhead that can strike the mainland United States, saying the program is necessary to counter U.S. aggression.
The code used in the latest attack is similar to that used in past hacks blamed on Kim Jong-un's regime, leading some to point the finger at Pyongyang.
North Korea will rapidly strengthen its nuclear strike capability as long as the United States maintains its "hostile policy" toward the country, the country's deputy U.N. ambassador said Friday.
Kim In Ryong said: "As everybody knows, the Americans have gestured toward dialogue".
The ambassador praised the latest successful North Korean missile launch, stating that the country would not give in to U.S. pressure.
Speaking at the United Nations headquarters in New York City, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's deputy U.N. ambassador flatly denied Pyongyang played a part in last week's unprecedented cyberattack, dismissing suspicions raised recently by security researchers in the USA and overseas.

Elaborating on the benefits that North Korea will be provided if it scraps its nuclear programme, Tillerson said if the DPRK cooperates, then some companies can invest in the nation.
The US has deployed the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD) system in South Korea to defend against threats from North Korea.
All 15 members of the Security Council including North Korea's closest ally China called the launch a violation of United Nations sanctions and vowed to take new measures, including additional sanctions. "You have to pick a side".
President Donald Trump is looking to both China and Russian Federation, the two permanent members on the Security Council that have historically been most sympathetic to North Korea, to join the US -backed campaign of diplomatic and economic pressure on the North to get it to denuclearize. "Therefore, the urgent issue to be settled on the Korean Peninsula is to put a definite end to the United States hostile policy towards DPRK, the root cause of all problems".
