The statement also blasted Obama for pressuring Sony Pictures to release “The Interview,” a satirical film that portrays the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The statement, which was released through the country’s state media and attributed to a spokesman for the policy department of the National Defense Commission, charges that the U.S. “feigned ignorance” regarding disruptions to North Korean websites earlier this week.
It also called Obama the “chief culprit” in prodding Sony to release “The Interview,” the Journal said.
The movie was shown at around 300 independent theaters and was released online on Thursday. Sony had previously canceled the wide release of the film after a hacking attack that U.S. authorities have blamed on North Korea. Pyongyang has denied a role in the cyberattack on Sony.
After the attack on Sony, Obama said the U.S. would “respond proportionately” over the incident.
