Rodman was spotted heading towards a North Korea-bound plane at Beijing International Airport today.

North Korea is expecting another visit by Rodman on Tuesday in what would be his firs.

The meeting took place on February 9, and the man had ties to US intelligence, according to Malaysia authorities. Once, Rodman brought with him several other former National Basketball Association players for a couple of exhibition games to celebrate Kim's birthday.

Kim added that the relations between Russian Federation and North Korea have a long history, and expressed hope that the traditions of friendship between the two countries would be further strengthen.

It's not known why Rodman is making the trip to Pyongyang now, when the relationship between North Korea and the U.S.is at a low point.


The trip also featured Rodman and a squad of former NBA stars taking part in a pickup game as part of what Rodman called "basketball diplomacy". Rodman has defended his travels, saying in an interview with CNN in 2014 they would help "open the door" to the reclusive state.

Tensions between North Korea and the United States are at all-time high levels.

Rodman has made several visits to North Korea.

Currently, four Americans are being held in North Korea, including Kim Sang Duk and Kim Hak-song, two academics who worked at Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier and businessman Kim Dong Chul.

Wearing sunglasses and a black T-shirt advertising a marijuana cybercurrency, Rodman passed through immigration at Beijing airport, from where he is expected to fly to Pyongyang, the North Korean capital. Pyongyang has already 16 missiles this year. Rodman told Kim he has a "friend for life". He's claimed some were about trying to use basketball to bridge the divide between the two countries.
