Seoul announced its readiness to implement the gas pipeline project from the Russian Federation through the DPRK

58
The Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Korea Kan Gen Hwa, speaking at the Energy Forum in Seoul, said that the apparent warming on the Korean Peninsula is conducive to the arrival of investments for the implementation of economic projects. One of such projects is the construction of a gas pipeline from Russia to South Korea through the territory of the DPRK with branches and for North Korean consumers.


Seoul announced its readiness to implement the gas pipeline project from the Russian Federation through the DPRK


TASS quotes Kang Gen Hwa's statement:
If the security situation on the Korean peninsula improves, we will be able to proceed to the consideration of the gas pipeline project with the participation of two Korean states and Russia.


According to the South Korean official, the potential participation of Pyongyang in such projects can automatically lead to an additional decrease in the degree of tension in the Asia-Pacific region.

Recall that inter-Korean contacts have recently become more frequent. On 27, April, Pyongyang and Seoul scheduled a summit of the two states. Earlier, the head of the DPRK, Kim Jong-un (after meeting with the chairman of the PRC, Xi Jinping), expressed his willingness to meet with the heads of Russia, Japan and South Korea.

        Everyone knows how to count, even Koreans. Cheap energy sources - inexpensive goods! RK will become even more competitive ...
        The United States will be unhappy, their products will not stand such competition. Also, Europe will introduce duties. But you can’t make up with lobbyism alone ...

          Recently, the Chinese have been very intractable. This refers to the "Power of Siberia" and the projects around it. And if the project with Korea starts, the "Chinese partners" will scratch the pumpkin a hundred times

            The Chinese are glad for gas, but if they increase its consumption, they will cut off their coal production, and so because of American duties on steel, the coal industry will suffer severely. They have coal energy almost 70%, and the share of gas 5%. There are millions and millions of people connected with coal. Ecology in China is sideways, the Chinese do not have fresh air. Here Koreans can still having cheap energy reduce the cost of goods to the Chinese level, and the quality is not worse than the Japanese. This will be a victory in the dispute between the Asian tigers for global consumer goods and real relaxation on the peninsula. Forever in the problems of the DPRK will also receive energy, and transit, and a valve, as a guarantor of the world on an economic basis. They say that because of this pipe, the Chinese eliminated Ira when he agreed with the GDP.

      That's it. Last year my thought slipped through, why not draw a gas pipeline to South Korea through North. Thus, we kill 3, or even 4 rabbits:
      - we profit and benefit from cooperation
      - southerners cheap gas
      - gas and transit for money to northerners
      - Well, 4 Americans with liquefied gas suitcase, train station and nafig.
      And here, just as I thought it turns out.

      And what is the difference to China? Two options, a thread to China and a branch to the DPRK or a second thread to the DPRK separately from Russia. China will not master all gas from the Power of Siberia. Plus the gasification of Primorye, the same boiler rooms in the town.

        The difference is that cheap gas lowers the cost of production and the cost of communal services .. All this on the scale of a powerful economy - very large preferences and growth ... and therefore a direct competitor is growing, which is not necessary for China .. hi

          Nonsense, China was following the model of the USSR, centralized provision of heat, light, etc. RK in the West, separate provision. And industry in Kazakhstan is more developed, although China is catching up. And in general, our gas, to whom we want, is what we are selling to.

    Given the fact that Trump promised to revise trade agreements with South Korea (it is understandable in whose favor) Seoul needs to try to do its best in international affairs. But it is one thing to try, and another to do when the Americans hold them by the throat, and tightly. The idea of ​​a gas pipeline project is beautiful, but is it feasible?

    There the transiter is "drawn" by the DPRK. There is no international trade sanction against them. I won’t yet know about the reasons, but our companies will get it. As a consumer, there is not enough currency, and how Ukrainians have sucked out and not pay. Not a single court will take out debt, and they are against Russia, takes into account the economic difficulties of debtors.

    Look who appointed Trump as national security adviser - John Bolton. The Americans simply are not profitable, they were planning to bomb Korea, and now they will silently allow the gas pipeline, right?
    John Bolton is known for his tough stance on Pyongyang. In particular, in 2017, during the period of aggravation of the conflict between the United States and the DPRK, he repeatedly spoke out for launching a preventive strike on North Korea. The last time Bolton called for bombing the DPRK just a month ago in a column for The Wall Street Journal.
