At 98, former US President Jimmy Carter may be living his last moments. "After a series of short hospital stays, the former US President decided today to spend his remaining time with his family and receive palliative care, rather than additional medical intervention," thus informed his foundation in a press release.
Jimmy Carter is the oldest surviving American president. Artisan of the Camp David agreements which led, in March 1979, to the signing of the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty, the democrat had been strongly criticized in his country during the taking of American hostages in Iran in 1979-80 .
After leaving the White House, he founded The Carter Center in 1982 to promote development, health, and conflict resolution around the world. In 2002, he received the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize, notably for "his decades of tireless efforts to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts".
Jimmy Carter suffered from a series of health issues that required him to be hospitalized several times in 2019.
