Rodman says he's going to NKorea to open a door

Irune Rengel | 14 Junio, 2017, 11:21

"We want the world to know how we and our son have been brutalised and terrorised by the pariah regime [in North Korea]", Fred and Cindy Warmbier said in a statement to The Associated Press.

An American college student who has been in a coma, according to his parents, while serving a 15-year prison term in North Korea, was released and evacuated Tuesday as the Trump administration revealed a rare exchange with the reclusive country.

"This has been an unimaginable, traumatic year for them", said Sara Kenny, University of Virginia Student Council President, about the Warmbier family.

North Korea has woefully inadequate medical care and it is not clear how North Korean doctors had been caring for Warmbier during more than a year in an unconscious state.

Rodman isn't representing the USA government or serving as President Donald Trump's emissary, Anton said.

After returning to the United States following the 2014 visit, Rodman spent three weeks at a New Jersey-based alcohol rehabilitation center, which he said was not about giving up drinking, but to "decompress from all things" he was going through.

In April the President said that he would be willing to meet the North Korean despot "under the right circumstance".

Trump told Fox & Friends,"Maybe Dennis is a lot better than what we have", after one of Rodman's trips.

PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) - Dennis Rodman, the former National Basketball Association bad boy who has palled around with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, flew back to Pyongyang on Tuesday for the first time in Donald Trump's presidency.

There are now three American citizens being held in North Korea.

The US state department said it is aware of his visit.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson confirmed Tuesday that Otto Warmbier, 22, had been released from prison and would be reunited with his family. His current visit has already been roundly criticized by some for its timing, during high tensions between the USA and North Korea over its weapons programs and recent missile launches.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is believed to be a big basketball fan and has struck up a friendship with Rodman.

Warmbier was on a New Year's Eve tour in North Korea, en route to Hong Kong, where he was to do a January study-abroad trip.

Even so, Rodman endorsed Trump for president in a tweet in 2015, calling him a "great friend for many years". (Rodman first appeared on the reality television show in 2009).

On Twitter on Tuesday, Mr Rodman said his latest trip was being sponsored by a company that provides digital currency for the marijuana industry.

Mr Rodman endorsed Mr Trump's presidential campaign.

Former NBA player Charles Smith said at the time that he felt remorse for coming to Pyongyang with Rodman because the event was dwarfed by politics and tainted by Rodman's own comments. Ripley also reported that State Department officials were caught off guard Tuesday morning by news of Rodman's travels and called it a "strange coincidence" with talks to free Wambier.
