Jimmy Carter meets the PM
October 27, 2006
Former US President Jimmy Carter met Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday in New Delhi.
Carter, who was President from 1976 to 1980, is visiting India after 28 years in connection with a humanitarian project.
A Nobel Peace Prize Laureate for his 'untiring efforts' towards resolving international conflicts, Carter has dedicated much of his life toward several issues.
His visit to Lonavla, near Mumbai, on Saturday, will also be a personally significant one, since his mother had served there during her time in the Peace Corps.
