Former President Jimmy Carter has reportedly offered to fly to North Korea to help the Trump administration continue its nuclear weapons talks with the reclusive nation.

Rep. Ro Khanna, D-Calif., told Politico he spoke with Carter on Thursday and was told of the offer.

The 94-year-old Carter served one term as president from 1977-1981. He has taken on several diplomatic roles since, including visiting North Korea in 1994 — at the direction of then-Present Bill Clinton — to hold talks with the country's leader Kim Il Sung. Kim, who died a month after Carter's visit, is the grandfather of current North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Carter also traveled to North Korea in 2010 to negotiate the release of an American being held there.

"The fact that Carter is willing to engage Kim Jong Un is a good thing," Khanna told Politico.

President Donald Trump met with Kim last June and again last week in an effort to convince the North Koreans to abandon their nuclear weapons program. The most recent talks, which took place in Hanoi, Vietnam, ended in a stalemate when the two sides could not agree on a resolution.
