The U.S. is considering putting North Korea back on its list of state sponsors of terrorism in the wake of a massive hacking attack on Sony Pictures.
U.S. President Barack Obama pledged to "respond proportionally… in a place and time and the manner that we choose" during his year-end press conference at the White House on Friday.
The North was removed from the list six years ago.
U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki briefed after the press conference that the U.S. has "the right to use all necessary means -- diplomatic, informational, military and economic as appropriate and as consistent with domestic and international law -- in order to protect and defend our nation, our allies, and our interests."
