SEOUL, May 29 (MENA) - North Korea on Friday lashed out at the United States for issuing an advisory last month over the communist regime's cyber threats, Yonhap news agency reported.

"To put it clearly, our state has nothing to do at all with what is claimed by the U.S. to be a cyber threat," Pyongyang's foreign ministry said in an English statement on its website.

"The U.S. should be clearly aware that worthless and worn-out plots and fabrications invented continuously by themselves will no longer work against the international community," it added.

On April 15, four US. government agencies issued a joint advisory highlighting the cyber threat posed by North Korea.

"The DPRK's malicious cyber activities threaten the United States and the broader international community and, in particular, pose a significant threat to the integrity and stability of the international financial system," the advisory said, referring to North Korea by its official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.
