Jimmy Carter Explains What North Korean Leaders Told Him
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
The neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post gave him feature op-ed space to discuss one of the vital issues of our time – the urgency of avoiding another Korean war, potentially with nuclear weapons, devastating the peninsula and beyond if used, Carter saying:
"(T)he strong possibility of another Korean war…is the most serious existing threat to world peace, and it is imperative that Pyongyang and Washington find some way to ease the escalating tension and reach a lasting, peaceful agreement."
True enough, the problem lying squarely in Washington, not Pyongyang, for decades wanting normalized relations with America and the West.
Carter met earlier with Kim Il-sung (North Korea's founder), Kim Jong-nam (his eldest son and successor), and president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly.
