Dennis Rodman has reportedly announced plans to return to North Korea in order to broker peace between Kim Jong-un and US President Barack Obama.
Rodman's publicist tells TMZ that the NBA legend wants to use his newly-minted friendship with Kim Jong-un to set the stage for a peace deal, convincing the dictator to engage in talks with Obama. He plans to return to North Korea in the next 6 months to host another kids basketball clinic.
Rodman has apparently made the diplomatic mission his top priority, despite the fact that he is not acting in any official capacity on behalf of the US.
The former NBA star's publicist has also apologized for Rodman praising the late Kim Jong-il and Kim Il-sung without fully understanding the extent of their human rights violations.
Rodman's rep says that despite a legendary career - Basketball Hall of Fame, five titles, rebounding records, defensive awards - a U.S./N.K. peace deal would be his "greatest achievement."
