The US State Department has criticised North Korea for "wining and dining" former NBA star Dennis Rodman when "they should be feeding their own people".
Spokesman Patrick Ventrell distanced the US Government from Rodman's visit to Pyongyang this week, during which the star told Kim Jong-un he had made "a friend for life".
Ventrell told reporters, "You've got the regime spending money to wine and dine foreign visitors, when they should be feeding their own people".
Rodman said on his Twitter page he is returning to the US today and on Monday he will "tell what is true and not true of what you have heard and read".
