Former President Carter visits White House


WASHINGTON - Former President Jimmy Carter has dropped by the White House to greet President Barack Obama and discuss international affairs with the president's national security adviser.

National Security Council spokesman Mike Hammer said Carter and national security adviser Tom Donilon discussed several foreign policy issues Tuesday.

Rising tensions on the Korean peninsula likely were on the agenda because of Carter's expertise with the region, and his recent visit to North Korea where he helped secure the release of an American prisoner.
