A new stage in the development of relations between Russia and the DPRK in the field of international motor transport

Russia and North Korea intend to sign an agreement on international road transport. Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev instructed the Ministry of Transport to hold talks with the North Korean side with the participation of the Russian Foreign Ministry and sign the agreement on behalf of the Russian government.

Recall that in 2004, as a result of negotiations between the delegations of the Russian Federation and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in Vladivostok, a Protocol was signed on cooperation between Russia and the DPRK in the field of international motor transport. However, until now this issue remains unresolved, the message is made exclusively by rail

According to the signed document, the parties expressed their intention to conclude an intergovernmental agreement on international road traffic, the construction of an automobile bridge across the Tumangan River and the Tumangan-Hasan checkpoint on the border between Russia and the DPRK. The meeting participants discussed the possibilities of building the Tumangan-Khasan automobile bridge. At the moment, Russia is initiating the resumption of dialogue with the DPRK on this issue, bearing in mind the prospects for further investment cooperation within the framework of a new common model of Russian-North Korean relations under the meaningful title "Victory" (it would be good to refer to the first news here).

The meeting was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Transport of the Russian Federation, Vice President of the Association of Russian International Road Carriers Evgeny Sudakov, Deputy Director of the Department of the Ministry of Foreign Trade of the DPRK, Comrade Cha EnSik, representatives of the Ministry of Land Management and Environmental Protection of the DPRK.
