The construction of the Hasan-Rajin railway can become a joint project of Russia, the Republic of Korea and the DPRK

The main topic of the meeting of the Eurasian Transport and Energy Forum, which took place in Seoul on April 22, was the development of trilateral economic cooperation. Russia - Республика Корея - DPRK... It was proposed to create a special trilateral working group to promote joint projects, such as RasonConTrans, which would include representatives of all three states, the press service of the RF Ministry for the Development of the Far East reports.

To date, the project of reconstruction of the railway of the road Hasan - Rajin represents the most striking example of cooperation between Russia, the DPRK and Korea. Russian Railways has invested over $ 300 million in modernizing the railway and automating control systems. Since the beginning of 2015, the cargo turnover has already reached 360 thousand tons, and Russian Railways plans to reach 1,5 million tons of cargo.

Minister of Development of the Far East Alexander Galushka, who took part in the forum, said about Russia's principled intention to include the Republic of Korea in the project. Korean forum participants, in turn, expressed their enthusiasm for the development of the Hasan-Rajin project, since this project is implemented in the logic of creating the eastern route of the Trans-Korean Railway Line with access to the Trans-Siberian Railway. Counter-directed development of railways makes it possible in the foreseeable future to connect the entire Korean peninsula with the Russian transport infrastructure.

Also at the meeting, the South Korean side confirmed that it sees the development of tripartite cooperation in the industrial zone in Kaesong. In particular, Russia noted the desire of Russian companies to become residents of the industrial zone in Kaesong.
