Former President Jimmy Carter says he supports President Donald Trump's decision to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on Sunday.

"I think it's good that he's decided to go," Carter told a Sunday school class at Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Georgia. "If we could avoid a nuclear confrontation with North Korea, that would be a wonderful achievement."

Carter recounted that the diplomatic developments came just as he was requesting an update from the White House on the issue.

"I had made arrangements last week with the White House to have some experts come down and give me an up-to-date briefing on what's going on concerning North Korea," he said. "They came down the day that Kim Jong Un invited Trump to come over. So we had a lot to talk about."

Carter himself made history when he became the first former president to visit North Korea in 1994, The Hill reported.

During the visit he met with Kim's grandfather, Kim Il Sung, to hold talks on a resumption of dialogue between the two countries.
