ATLANTA (Ma'an) -- Former US President Jimmy Carter will join global leaders in a visit to the occupied Palestinian territories beginning Saturday, the group announced Friday.

The trip will be the second collective visit by The Elders, a group of eminent global leaders founded by Nelson Mandela.

“The Elders firmly support current efforts to reach a two-state solution, although we want to emphasize that we are not directly involved in the US-led mediation efforts. Our aim will be to listen to a wide range of people about their aspirations for peace, including those who are currently at the margins of the process," delegation leader and former Irish President Mary Robinson said.

“We will also be seeking to persuade political leaders, members of civil society and the media that any peace agreement must ensure the safety and security of Israelis and Palestinians, and embrace fundamental principles of international law, including human rights. These concepts – justice, security, and inclusiveness – will be at the heart of our discussions in the region,” she added.

The group will travel to Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories.
