On the train from Seoul to Moscow - the dream of the entire Korean people

39
The project to unite the railway branches of the entire Korean Peninsula into a single network and the connection of this network with the Russian Transsib should be realized as soon as possible, reports TASS statement of the deputy of the parliament of Kazakhstan Son Yon Gil.



Earlier, Yong Gil headed the Committee on Northern Economic Cooperation. He is now in Vladivostok at the Eastern Economic Forum.

According to him, the security situation on the peninsula and relations between Seoul and Pyongyang have improved significantly in recent months. In this regard, the deputy called businessmen of the two countries to intensify efforts to implement the project of connecting railways.

I really hope that the dream of our leader Moon Jae-Ina and the entire Korean people will be fulfilled: the railways of the South and the North will be connected and it will be possible to take a train from Seoul to Moscow or St. Petersburg,
said Gil.

He noted that a period of “hopes and peace” was prevailing on the peninsula today, and many companies in Kazakhstan formed departments responsible for cooperation with the northern territories, including Russia. First of all, hopes are pinned on the development and implementation of projects in the field of railway transport, processing industry and infrastructure.

The deputy also stressed that Seoul is making efforts to develop innovative areas, and also provides assistance to entrepreneurs who have decided to enter the Russian market. He expressed hope for the creation of new projects aimed at the development of economic relations between the Republic of Korea and the Russian Federation.

The work of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok will last until September 13.

    Does the track width in Russia and both Korea coincide? Or will the cars change shoes at the crossings, as we have in Brest? what

      Yes, it seems like they match.

      I didn’t understand, do you have a narrow gauge?

        We have a wider gauge than in Europe, because in Brest cars change their shoes.

      Unfortunately, they do not match. In Korea, the European gauge is 143,5 cm. But something else is important if a project with a railway is possible. , then the Russia-South Korea gas pipeline becomes a matter of time. And this, in addition to direct economic profit, will give Russia leverage over the "potential hegemon" China

        Not unfortunately, but fortunately. From a military point of view. Otherwise, the train with abrams will reach without hesitation from Paris to Chelyabinsk. And so the generals road, bridge and frost will immediately enter into battle with them, not to mention the hordes of the Mordorian Buryats. Hothouse padlosax logistic collapse is still in its infancy. Smart people did. Head need to think

          This stopped working in 41st. And the "trains" are already under St. Petersburg.

      There is also a combined track, as the Russian Federation did when modernizing railways in the DPRK

        There is a model of trolleys that have sliding axles.
        Only a smooth transition from a narrow gauge to a wide gauge and vice versa is needed.
        Then the carts do not need to be changed.

    In principle, there is a railway connection between the DPRK and the Russian Federation through Primorye. And, if the DPRK and RK railways unite, then there is no problem for every Korean to get to Moscow, or even through it to Europe. I think that it would be more correct to raise the question of the speed of such a trip. While there is no expressway, it lasts about seven days only along Russian territory. Therefore, it would be more valuable if, with the participation of Korean states, the Trans-Siberian Railway would be rebuilt under a high-speed highway. A similar project, which was launched with China, today almost does not take into account the interests of the Korean states in high-speed rail links with Europe and Japan. And in this regard, there is reason to develop an alternative project. By the way, with these same states, we can consider the construction of a high-speed railway connecting the Far East and the North American continent through the Dezhnev Strait. By the way, the Chinese are not indifferent to this idea, but they have not yet decided to swipe at such a project. hi

      Yes there is, but the branch is still from the 50s of the USSR and has not been repaired since


      The project of a bridge between Russia and the USA was also considered more than once.

      I’ll add from myself that I am a supporter of the tunnel in this section, since the conditions for the construction of the ground are very difficult

      the cargo, in fact, doesn’t care how much it travels, and in this railway connection it will prevail and dominate ordinary citizens. In principle, all this is conceived for him.

    As the saying goes: "with such a bite, but honey would be screwed!" It would be great to cut such a project, together with a gas pipe in the Republic of Kazakhstan across the territory of the UK. BUT. ROK is, in fact, under US military and political occupation. And these tovarischi will not allow this in any way.

      So I wanted to say - "and Baba Yaga is against!"
      The UN command, led by an American general, did not allow South and North Korea to conduct a joint survey of the DPRK railways, banning the border crossing of the South Korean train.

        The most direct.
        The less negative information scanned from the media around Russia, the better for us.
        But how can the average man understand - where is white and where is black?
        Only if he sees with his own eyes. And compares with the imposed point of view.
        Something like that.

    Great title for the article! There are many different things you can think of! "By train from Seoul to Moscow is the dream of all Korean people"
    First: On the way, everyone will run away in search of food. Secondly: Kim will run away from his own country to stay alive, otherwise there is such "communism" that only the leadership is "equal", and the rest are intimidated slaves. And not only there.
    I could have continued, but whoever has not been there will not understand. Conversation with a citizen only under the watch of a "man in civilian clothes".

    The idea is beautiful, only who will put our roads in order. In the mid-80s, I had an athlete, worked as an electrician on railway, so he said that almost 30% of roads are in indecent condition. True, then the traffic intensity was not an example of the present, but I don’t know what condition of the roads now, but judging by our hopmenagers, it’s not at all better, if not worse.

      Although in theory it would be more profitable than the United States. Since the release of consumer goods to the EU and CIS markets only from the PRC will not allow Kazakhstan and Japan to compete in the EU, and if the entire Asia-Pacific region, through our Transibs and BAM, rush into the EU, then the Chinese will get less money ...
      It turns out that the United States artificially restrains the development of Kazakhstan in favor of China, where is the logic, I do not understand the Americans?
