North Korean foreign ministry denounces U.S. film The Interview as ‘terrorism’

North Korea officially respond to action-comedy film, saying those who produced it are "gangster-like scoundrels"

A spokesman for North Korea’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement Wednesday via the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) condemning the U.S. film "The Interview" as 'terrorism'.

The statement, which represents the first time North Korea has officially commented on the action-comedy, strongly criticized the film's storyline, which focuses largely on the attempted assassination of Kim Jong Un.
