Jimmy Carter Talks at Nobel Conference

Former President Jimmy Carter says the United States needs to find a way to be a leader in global peace.

Carter spoke Monday in Chicago at the World Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates. The Nobel summit has taken place for a dozen years, but this is the first time it's been held on this continent. Mikhail Gorbachev, the Dalai Lama and Carter are just a few of the Nobel Peace Prize winners expected at the conference.

Carter says that the United State has a responsibility to promote the values of the Nobel Peace Prize winners because the U.S. is the only global superpower. Carter also spoke about economic embargos.

The conference comes just weeks before Chicago hosts President Barack Obama and foreign leaders for the NATO summit.
