NEW YORK, Nov. 15 (Yonhap) -- U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon plans to visit North Korea this week, a senior U.N. source said Sunday.

Ban's visit to Pyongyang will be the first time in his capacity as U.N. chief, the source told Yonhap News Agency.

The planned trip raises hope that he might broker progress in inter-Korean relations and efforts to resolve the North Korean nuclear standoff.
