Statement from Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter on the Passing of Ken Taylor

Rosalynn and I are deeply saddened to learn of the death of former Canadian Ambassador to Iran Ken Taylor. His selfless acts of courage saved the lives of U.S. citizens in Iran and made him a hero to all Americans. We will miss his personal friendship, and extend sincere condolences to his wife, Pat, and his son, Douglas.
