And US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, will be among the officials who will participate in the conference, without knowing if there are pre-established bilateral meetings.
Iran and North Korea, which are involved in nuclear programs, are in direct conflict with the United States over the issue. On Tuesday, Pyongyang warned that it might seek to search for a "new path" to accelerate its weapons programs, after Washington imposed new sanctions on North Korean companies, as the nuclear talks reached a dead end.
In addition to Pompeo, he will also attend on the US side, according to the organizers, Defense Secretary Mark Esber and Speaker of the Democratic House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi.
Since 1963, the Munich Security Conference has brought together dozens of state officials, and this year the conference is being held amidst severe tension in the Middle East.
