Jimmy Carter Goes to North Korea, Accuses US of 'Human Rights Violations'

No Kim Jong Il meeting for Carter

(By Jennifer Epstein, Politico) -
Wrapping up his visit this week to Pyongyang, former President Jimmy Carter says relations between North Korea and South Korea are “currently at rock bottom.” Nonetheless, he said he believes the North is committed to getting talks underway.


Carter also used his trip to North Korea to observe the country’s food rationing system. That the United States and South Korea have chosen “to deliberately withhold food aid to the North Korean people because of political or military issues not related is really indeed a human rights violation,” he said.
