WASHINGTON, D.C. (WTNH) — North Korea is denying accusations its behind the hack at Sony Pictures. Instead the country claims, it is being framed by the United States.

North Korea officials maintain, the country would not launch a terror attack against innocent moviegoers and is also issuing the United States an ultimatum, either accept the country’s proposal of a join investigation and stop reporting the country is behind the Sony hack, or face serious consequences. No word on what those consequences would be.

This all comes in the wake of Sony Picture’s decision to cancel the release of “The Interview” a movie centered around a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
