North Korean officials are reportedly trying to meet with former U.S. officials this week.
Yonhap News cited sources in Washington as saying the North's chief nuclear negotiator Ri Yong-ho is in Berlin to attend a seminar alongside a number of U.S. experts on the Korean peninsula.
Attendees from the U.S. include Washington's ex-nuclear negotiator Stephen Bosworth and former State Department official Joel Wit.
Diplomatic sources said the seminar is being private and no incumbent U.S. officials will attend, but there is a chance that the ex-U.S. officials may decide to meet Ri.
