WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The White House said on Monday it was not confirming a trip by former President Jimmy Carter to North Korea to win release of an American citizen being held there.
Earlier a White House spokesman said Carter would be making the trip in a personal capacity. The White House later clarified those remarks, saying the spokesman was not confirming that Carter was making a trip.
