RUSSIA TO LINK THE KOREAS BY RAIL? The Railway Ministry's
press service told Interfax on 30 October that the Railway
Ministries of Russia and North Korea will sign an agreement
at the end of Russian First Deputy Railway Minister Aleksandr
Tselko's current visit to North Korea whereby Russia will
restore the railway service between North and South Korea.
The subject was raised recently during a visit to Moscow this
month by South Korea's Transportation Minister Kim Yun Ki
(see "RFE/RL Newsline," 12 October 2000). Railway Minister
Nikolai Aksenenko said earlier that his ministry is prepared
"to give North Korea technical, construction and financial
support in rebuilding the rail track on its territory up to
the border with [South] Korea." JAC
