UN - North Korea is insisting it had nothing to do with the cyberattack on Sony Pictures and is urging the United States to provide evidence of the country' involvement.

North Korea's deputy UN ambassador, An Myong Hun, again called for a joint investigation with the US.

He spoke at a news conference on Tuesday after the Obama administration told the US Congress that sanctions imposed earlier this month were only the first step in response to the cyberattack over Sony's movie, "The Interview". The film depicts a fictitious assassination attempt on the North Korean leader.
