Former US President Jimmy Carter 'offers to hold peace talks with North Korea'Former US President Jimmy Carter is said to have offered to engage in peace talks with North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un over the regime's expanding nuclear and ballistic weapons programme. The 93-year-old is reportedly even willing to travel to Pyongyang to prevent war – a suggestion that is likely to upset Donald Trump. “Carter wants to meet with the North Korean leader and play a constructive role for peace on the Korean Peninsula as he did in 1994,” Park Han-shik, a professor at the University of Georgia, told South Korea’s JoongAng Daily newspaper.
