Carter accuses US of human rights abuses

28-04-2011

The former US President, Jimmy Carter, has accused the United States of committing human rights abuses by withholding food aid from North Korea.

Mr Carter has just finished a two-day visit to North Korea.

He said the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il had expressed the wish to meet the South Korean President, Lee Myung-bak.

Efforts to improve inter-Korean relations have been deadlocked, with the North refusing to accept blame for two deadly border incidents last year.
