Japan condemns Sony cyberattack, sees no impact on its North Korea talks

Japan strongly condemns a cyber attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment that the United States has blamed on North Korea, and is maintaining close contact with Washington on the matter, a Japanese foreign ministry spokeswoman said.



Tokyo: Japan strongly condemns a cyber attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment that the United States has blamed on North Korea, and is maintaining close contact with Washington on the matter, a Japanese foreign ministry spokeswoman said.

But Japan sees no direct impact on its talks with North Korea over the fate of Japanese citizens abducted by Pyongyang`s agents decades ago, the spokeswoman added.

"Japan recognises that the cyberattack is a serious issue that affects national security and we strongly condemn the hacking," the spokeswoman told Reuters by telephone.

"We do not think this would give any direct impact to Japan-North Korea consultations and we continue to demand that North Korea conduct its research (on the abductees) rapidly and demand a quick report to Japan of the results of the investigation."
