North Korea denies the allegations of stealing an enormous amount of money, $2 billion, from cryptocurrency exchanges and banks.
The denial appeared on September 1 and was announced by the KCNA (Korea Central News Agency). According to the sanctions committee of the UNSC on North Korea, local cybercriminals’ aim was to get money for weapons of mass destruction programs.
KCNA in its turn claimed that the USA together with other “enemies” keep spreading these rumours in order to damage North Korea’s reputation and justify pressure.

As mentioned earlier, Chinese authorities supported Cambodia in introducing a ban on online gambling.
