Jimmy Carter Says He’s Received 2nd Cancer Drug Treatment
He just keeps moving on — almost like the Energizer bunny. He and Roselyn give a press conference to update everyone on his cancer treatment and when they give that information he moves on to Carter Center business and world news.
He unflinchingly took audience-written questions, ranging from global security to his presidency and his childhood in rural Georgia. He reiterated his previous support for President Barack Obama’s proposed nuclear agreement with Iran, calling it good for the U.S., Israel and the world.
He said war in Syria is the principal reason thousands of migrants are seeking asylum in European countries. He urged U.S officials to enlist Iran and Russia in ending the conflict, and to be generous in offering safe harbor for the people who are fleeing.
“There’s not an easy answer to it,” Carter said. “We now have more refugees from war zones on Earth than we’ve ever had in history, even after the Second World War.”
