All these days there were speculations that North Korea is funding its nuclear ambitions with cyber attacks. But experts from United Nations have confirmed this news this week and came to an estimation that the Kim Jung UN led nation could have gathered over USD 316.4 million between November’ 2019- 2020 alone.
A panel of experts from UN who were pressed into service to analyze the funding’s also revealed that the Korean nation was being able to launch digital attacks by exploiting some loopholes that are making the UN sanctions ineffective.
To those uninitiated, North Korea was slapped with sanctions by UN as soon as it tested the explosion of its nuclear devices in 2006. The organizations that work for peace in the world imposed certain restrictions on Pyongyang so that its leader abandons his nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
But on contrary, Kim looked to seek other alternatives to fulfill his nuclear ambitions, such as launching cyber attacks on banking entities operating across the world, stealing cryptocurrency from wallets of companies and exchanges and illegally importing refined petroleum.
Former US President Donald Trump showed his valence in taming the ideologies of North Korean leader to a large extent that even made Mr. Jung destroy some nuclear facilities operating in and around Pyongyang- an eyewash to the world, though.
On Tuesday, Kim criticized his government officials for unspecified passiveness and self protecting tendencies and asked them to improve the economic strength of the entire nation with various strategies.
Wonder what is now going in the mind of Jung after Joe Biden who called him a Thug has become the 46th President of United States.
