Carter came to Korea to give the lecture “A Nuclear-armed North Korea and Peace on the Korean Peninsula” at the invitation of the Inchon Memorial Foundation, Korea University and The Dong-A Ilbo. He normalized U.S. relations with China as president and after retirement, he held talks with the late North Korean leader Kim Il Sung, participating in the behind-the-doors negotiations over North Korea’s nuclear program.
