Former President Jimmy Carter says in a new interview that he is open to working with President Trump to solve the growing tensions between the USA and North Korea.

"I would go, yes", Carter told columnist Maureen Dowd of the New York Times.

Carter, a Democrat who was president from 1977 to 1981, said he had spoken to Trump's National Security Adviser Lt. -Gen. H. R. McMaster, but said he had not gotten a positive response.

"They want to save their regime".

"I don't know what they'll do", he said of North Korea.

If the United States is in need of a peacemaker in the country's talks with North Korea, former US President Jimmy Carter has volunteered for the job. He pointed to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un's unpredictability as a major reason why diplomacy was so necessary. "Particularly to Kim", who, Carter added, has "never, so far as I know, been to China". "Kim Jong-il did go to China and was very close to them". Describing the North Korean leader as "unpredictable", Carter anxious that if Kim thinks Trump will act against him, he could do something pre-emptive, the Times reported.

In the mid 1990s, the former president traveled to Pyongyang over the objections of President Bill Clinton, and struck a deal with Kim Il Sung, grandfather of the current leader.
