This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government


Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:

I unequivocally condemn these cyber attacks and am deeply concerned at the findings of the US investigation, which seems to provide further evidence of North Korea’s blatant disregard for international norms and obligations. I urge North Korea to work constructively with the outside world instead of attacking it.
