The Northern Sea Route project can be implemented jointly with partners from the APR countries

Plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District, Yuri Trutnev, at a press conference in the format of video conferencing, said that Russia could implement the project of the Northern Sea Route together with partners from the Asia-Pacific countries interested in delivering their goods by the shortest route from Asia to Europe, RIA Novosti reports. ...

Since this project will require a lot of money, and will also allow transportation not only from the Far East, but also from China, Japan, Korea, Yuri Trutnev considers it right to implement it jointly with partners while maintaining Russia's controlling stake.

The plenipotentiary also noted the improvement of shipping conditions for the Northern Sea Route due to the change in the global climate. Due to the warming, the number of days during which it can be used without additional ice wiring has increased.

Recall, the Northern Sea Route is the shortest between Northern Europe and the Asia-Pacific region (ATR), and its potential cargo traffic is estimated at 50 million tons per year.
