A former U.S. President, Jimmy Carter, has indicated willingness to travel to North Korea in a bid to help diffuse the growing tension between the U.S. and North Korea. The Democrat who was president from 1977 to 1981 when asked if it was time for another diplomatic mission said; “I would go, yes”.

Carter, 93 said he had spoken to a friend who is Trump’s National Security Adviser Lt.-Gen. H. R. McMaster, but said he had not gotten a positive response. ”I told him that I was available if they ever need me, I am afraid, too, of a situation.

”They want to save their regime. And we greatly overestimate China’s influence on North Korea. Particularly to Kim,” who, Carter added, has ”never, so far as I know, been to China.” “And they have no relationship. Kim Jong-il did go to China and was very close to them.”

Describing the North Korean leader as “unpredictable,” Carter worried that if Kim thinks Trump will act against him, he could do something pre-emptive.

“I think he’s now got advanced nuclear weaponry that can destroy the Korean Peninsula and Japan, and some of our outlying territories in the Pacific, maybe even our mainland,” Carter said.
