Dennis Rodman Reportedly Will Head to Trump-Kim Summit

There has been growing optimism over the possibility for such a declaration after US President Donald Trump suggested last Friday that he could declare an end to the Korean War at next week's summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Now, just days ahead of the much-anticipated summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. president Donald Trump, the men who made that striking gesture are no longer in their jobs.

The White House, State Department, CIA and Office of the Director of National Intelligence did not immediately respond to requests for official comment.

"I always say he's a big kid", Rodman said of Kim in August, after Trump had promised "fire and fury" in response to North Korean threats.

"To have a summit with a US President is something that many countries aspire to".

Mr Trump said last week he no longer wanted to use the phrase "maximum pressure" to describe the campaign because North Korea was being more cooperative, even though the United States is keeping current sanctions in place.

"He's talked about it, but no final trip or plans have been made", he said. North Korea under Kim Jong-un has maintained that nuclear bomb is essential to its existence and security.

The US President said the goal for the summit is denuclearising the Korean Peninsula, although the full agenda for the summit is yet to be announced. And, according to Davenport, it may also be unrealistic - and unnecessary - to demand that North Korea give up all its ballistic missiles.

Known as "The Worm", Rodman is one of the few Westerners to have met Kim, who took over following the death of his father Kim Jong-Il in 2011. The inspection work had to stop abruptly in 2009, when Pyongyang under the regime of Kim Jong-un's father Kim Jong-il expelled IAEA inspectors from its Yongbyon nuclear site.

Meanwhile Trump has promised to "transform" the rogue state after a meeting with the dictator's right-hand man, Kim Yong Choi.

"The president, the vice president, and the secretary of state have all told me separately that their intent is to put together a treaty that will be submitted to the Senate under the Constitution for ratification", he said.

But enthusiastic for a diplomatic victory, the Trump administration appears to be pushing ahead with the meeting this time.

U.S. officials believe there was some dissension in the military about Kim's approaches to South Korea and the US. Any peace treaty with the South, and the benefits that would bring, would require Washington's approval.

A Seoul government source said, "Right after Foreign Minister Lavrov visited Pyongyang on May 31, North Korean media reported that the two sides agreed to a North-Russia summit".
