ATLANTA (AP) — Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has made his first public appearance since cutting short an election observation visit in Guyana.

The 90-year-old ex-president told attendees of a summit at the Carter Center in Atlanta that he had a "bad cold," according to remarks from Monday morning provided by the center.

On Sunday, the center said Carter was returning to Atlanta a day early because he was not feeling well.

Carter said Monday that he is fine and "getting along well."

A photo released by the center showed Carter standing at a podium.

Carter is scheduled to speak with the group again Tuesday and attend an unrelated awards ceremony on Wednesday.
