If the wires look bare ie no plastic insulation then it most likely has a coat of lacquer as insulation, then it will need removing. It can melt away with a soldering iron but I prefer to scrape to scrape the coating away with a sharp blade before tinning with solder prior to soldering to the power supply. It’s a delicate job however..
