Korean Railroad

Russia is willing to help rebuild a railroad between North Korea and South Korea, Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov told his visiting South Korean counterpart.

South Korean Prime Minister Lee Han-Dong was in Russia to mark the 10th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries. He met with Kasyanov on Tuesday.

South Korea hopes the railroad will give it access through North Korea to Russia’s Trans-Siberian Railroad, reducing shipping costs to Europe.
