Ex-U.S. President Jimmy Carter wishes to visit North Korea: professor

WASHINGTON, Oct. 9, 2017 (Yonhap) --       

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter wants to visit North Korea and hold talks with its leader Kim Jong-un to ease the tensions on the Korean Peninsula that have been sparked by Pyongyang's recent nuclear and missile tests, a South Korea-born professor in the United States said.

 Park Han-shik, a professor emeritus at the University of Georgia, said Sunday (local time) that Carter wants to play a role in resolving the serious situation, just as he did in 1994 during the Bill Clinton administration. Park said he met Carter last month at the 93-year-old American's residence in Georgia.

 "To raise the credibility of his intentions, we talked about Carter sending his opinion on the current situation to the newspapers," Park said. "He did write an editorial, and his intention to visit Pyongyang has already been delivered to North Korean officials. We have yet to get answers from the North Koreans, but I'm sure they're giving it deep consideration."

   In his editorial published by the Washington Post on Oct. 4, Carter warned of another possible Korean war, and he wrote that the U.S. should consider sending a "high-level delegation" to North Korea for peace talks.

 Park said Carter offered to help to current U.S. President Donald Trump several times, but did not get a positive response. According to Park, Trump told Carter that North Korea issue should be handled by the current administration, not by a former president.

 Trump also reportedly told Carter to leave him alone, Park added.

 The Georgia University professor said Carter doesn't specifically want to be a special envoy, although visiting North Korea with such position can give him more authority.

 "We still have to watch North Korea's reaction," he said. "We might be able talk with Trump again if North Korea sends an official invitation. Should Trump steadfastly oppose the idea then we have to think about what we'll do next."

Our dear friends,

The situation on the Korean peninsula is not easy.
So – without any comment – we would like to share this "picture of hope with the children" with you.... as our donors!

We now prepare to provide new flour with your kind assistance.
Funds are not sufficient, but in the past, we reached what needs to be done at a minimum.
We now have new friends from France and other places.

We only can say: "THANK YOU for your care!"
Please... try to spread the word or to help the kids directly.
They are just waiting for their next meal and don't know about politics.

Thank you! And have a good start of the new week! Thank you so much!

A charity project for children of

Manna Mission of Europe Limited

Manna Mission of Europe – founded in 2004 – is a U.K. registered charity organisation.
The main purpose is to help impoverished children, often orphans, in the Najin-Sonbong area and other places (in Pyongyang and far away from the capital). The project Love North Korean Children (LNKC) even started in 2001.
We introduce our projects for 2018 to you.

We are running bakeries for the supply of staple food. That means to provide self-help, because we do not deliver bread to North Korea!
We deliver flour and employ staff in the country.

Therefore a strict monitoring is guaranteed.

Each bakery has a capacity of feeding 4,000-10,000 children and the staff. 
We currently have 26 possible locations for bakeries and orphanages; the construction and opening of such facilities depends on the funds we receive in the future.
  • The orphanages will not only provide the children with a nutritious source of food, but also the hope for a better future that is fueled by healthy food.

We reached an agreement with the North Korean government to get the estate for bakeries free of charge. So all the money goes directly towards providing humanitarian assistance. The flour is delivered from neighboring China to save transportation costs.

If you are interested to know about our details:

The cost of running one bakery is US $4,000- 8,000 for one month, which includes: fuel, flour, cost of repairs and salaries for 15 people.
We could provide you a complete list of the current running cost, upon request.
