North and South Korea will discuss the joint logistics project "Hasan-Rajin"

Special project Coal of the East of Russia
The Republic of Korea and the DPRK are preparing representatives for the meeting, within the framework of which the joint development of the logistics project "Hasan-Radzhin" will be discussed, the press service of the Minsk Region reported with reference to the Minister Alexander Galushka. The minister is co-chairman of the intergovernmental commission of the Russian Federation and the DPRK.

"We have received confirmation of the readiness of the North Korean side to host the corresponding delegation from South Korea as part of the practical consideration of the prospects for the tripartite implementation of the Hasan-Rajin project," the minister said in the message on the margins of the Fourth Yalta International Economic Forum. Alexander Galushka added that the meeting was discussed in March during his visit to Pyongyang.

The project was discussed at the meeting of the Deputy Prime Minister - Plenipotentiary of the President in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev and Foreign Minister of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea Lee Yong Ho in Moscow 13 April, as well as during the eighth meeting of the Intergovernmental Commission on Trade and Economic, Scientific and Technical Cooperation between the Russian Federation and the DPRK (IPC) in Pyongyang. "We considered the development of the project in the logic of bilateral cooperation, in the logic of reducing tensions on the Korean peninsula. And how these projects will be implemented is directly related to the international situation, with the position of South Korea, North Korea, how they will communicate with each other. This issue is complex, it must be solved in a political aspect. What is happening today, in my opinion, is counterproductive, - economic sanctions against North Korea have been announced, but economic sanctions to develop friendship and cooperation have never resulted, "Yuri Trutnev said in a press release.

The capacity of the Hasan-Rajin site and the terminal in the port of Rajin is 5 million tons of cargo per year. The terminal was opened in July 2014 year, in 2016, pilot deliveries of Russian coal from Rajin to South Korea by sea passed. The export of Russian coal through Rajin stopped, despite the special exceptions provided for by UN Security Council resolutions.
