Rodman said he was not trying to defend Kim and that he was just a "sports ambassador".
Speaking on Good Morning Britain on Wednesday, Rodman was asked about his relationship with Kim Jong-un, whom he has met on numerous occasions during his many visits to North Korea.
Former basketball star Dennis Rodman wants to help prevent a nuclear war and believes that by using sports and camaraderie, he can help the United States and North Korea get along peacefully. The announcement invited backlash from various countries including the U.S. and Japan.
The special assassination squad, which will be launched in December, was created by the South Korean defence ministry to neutralise "command and control" systems in the North, The Times reported. "And also we feel that you are an old friend", Kim Il-guk said.
Now, Rodman's take is worth paying attention to because it seems like he knows Kim better than anyone.
'To me, I think if the President even tries to reach out to Kim, there's a great possibility that things could happen. He said: "It was the fact that he loves basketball and I think that's the key for anything in the world - basketball and music".
The eccentric star struck up an unlikely bromance with tubster Kim and has made several trips to the secretive state in recent years. Last week, the USA president tweeted his views on resolving the North Korea issue: "Talking is not the answer!".

Speaking at the Sainik Sammelan at the CRPF base, the minister said its men were born with "unassailable and unmatched courage". Curfew-like restrictions were imposed in six police station areas of Srinagar as a preventive measure.

Rodman has apparently visited the Korean penninsula several times but that he and Kim rarely touch on politics.
"Every time I see him, he's always calm, he's always smiling, especially when he's with family", Rodman told Good Morning Britain. We ride horses, we go skiing.
Rodman insisted, repeatedly throughout the interview, that he wasn't an apologist for North Korea.
Rodman concluded the conversation by saying, "I don't love him [Kim]..." "For me to see him gives me a different view about the country, because I see it".
South Korea's defense ministry launched a plan to kill Kim dubbed Korea Massive Punishment and Retaliation (KMPR), local news service News 1 reported. He endorsed Trump back in 2015. I thank Donald Trump for giving me an opportunity to be on his show ["Celebrity Apprentice"], an opportunity to be his friend, and an opportunity to be an American", he said. "For some reason with North Korea we have a big issue", Rodman stated.
