Carter expressed concern over a possible "situation" with North Korea in a New York Times interview.
Former President Jimmy Carter says he's willing to lend a hand to President Donald Trump to de-escalate tensions with North Korea.
When asked in a New York Times interview if he would go on a diplomatic mission to the country, Carter replied, "I would go, yes."
The offer comes amid growing U.S.-North Korea tensions that have many Americans concerned about a possible war. North Korea has staged several missile launches in just in the past few months, and Carter says he, too, is afraid of a possible "situation."
His kind — if odd — gesture isn't entirely unprecedented. Carter traveled to North Korea in 1994 and made a deal with former leader Kim Il-sung, Kim Jong-un's grandfather. That would later be used to create the Agreed Framework deal adopted by the Clinton administration.
The 93-year-old said he told national security adviser H.R McMaster that he "was available if they ever need me."
