Japan condemns Sony hacking, says sharing information with Washington

TOKYO - Japan strongly condemns the cyberattack against Sony Pictures Entertainment that the United States has blamed on North Korea, Japan's government spokesman said.

"Japan is maintaining close contact with the United States and supporting their handling of this case," Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga told a regular news conference, adding that Tokyo is sharing information with Washington.

Suga did not answer when asked if Japan is convinced North Korea was behind the cyber attack, but repeated that he saw no effect on talks with North Korea over the fate of Japanese citizens abducted by Pyongyang agents decades ago.
