Dennis Rodman: North Korea leader wants Obama to call 丹尼斯.羅德曼︰北韓領導人要歐巴馬來電

Ex-professional basketball star Dennis Rodman says North Korean leader Kim Jong Un does not want war with the US. He just wants President Barack Obama to call him.

Rodman, the highest-profile American to meet the new North Korean leader since Kim took power in December 2011 after his father’s death, says Obama and Kim share a love of basketball, so “let’s start there.”

Rodman is just back from a visit to North Korea with the Harlem Globetrotters basketball team and spent two days with Kim.

The State Department on March 1 distanced itself from Rodman’s visit.

The trip took place amid strained ties between the US and North Korea over the North’s recent underground nuclear test. Rodman spoke on ABC television’s “This Week.”

前職籃明星丹尼斯.羅德曼說,北韓領導人金正恩不想與美國開戰。他只想要總統巴拉克.歐巴馬打電話給他。

羅德曼說,歐巴馬與金正恩都喜愛籃球,所以「讓我們從那裡開始。」羅德曼是金正恩在二○一一年十二月其父過世後接掌政權以來,與北韓新領袖會面最高調的美國人。

羅德曼與哈林世界巡迴籃球隊剛從北韓回來,他與金正恩共處兩天。

美國國務院三月一日對羅德曼的訪問劃清界線。

這趟旅程發生在美國與北韓因北韓最近的地下核試爆而關係緊張之際。羅德曼是在美國廣播公司電視節目「本週」上做此陳述。
