Dec. 8 (Bloomberg) -- New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson may travel to North Korea next week for meetings with the country’s top officials, the Washington Post reported, without saying where it got the information.

Richardson, who has visited North Korea many times, was invited by officials related to the country’s nuclear program, the newspaper reported.

Tensions have heightened on the Korean peninsula since North Korea shelled a South Korean island near their western maritime border on Nov. 23, killing four people, including two civilians. It was the first shelling of South Korean soil since the 1950-53 Korean War.

Kim Jong Il’s regime said Nov. 30 it has a plant for enriching uranium. The country said the program is for peaceful energy use.

North Korea has been under United Nations sanctions for its two nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009.
