North Korea, South Korea, Russia to cooperate on coal shipment

Trilateral project will test if South Korea can link to Russia's trans-Siberian railway

South Korea plan to bring 35,000 tons of Russian coal through North Korea’s Rajin port next month, in a test run for future trilateral logistics projects, according to Voice of America.

Three South Korean companies, KORAIL, POSCO and Hyundai Merchant Marine will work on the North Korean project, which South Korean authorities hope will link the country to the trans-Siberian railway via the DPRK’s northernmost port.
