Jimmy Carter, other former leaders to visit North Korea


BEIJING (AP) -- Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday that he hopes to meet with North Korea's reclusive leader during a visit aimed at assessing severe food shortages and discussing the revival of nuclear disarmament talks.

Carter is making the three-day visit to North Korea this week accompanied by former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari, former Norwegian Prime Minister Gro Brundtland and former Irish President Mary Robinson. The four are members of a group of retired world leaders called the Elders founded by former South African President Nelson Mandela.

3. Proof that nuclear arms win respect.
Libya gets bombs, N. Korea gets Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, and lots of aid.
