VLADIVOSTOK, May 21. /TASS/. North-eastern China’s Jilin province proposes constructing a high-speed railway to Vladivostok through Hunchun, a country-level city near the border with Russia.
The representatives of the Chinese delegation announced the plans to fulfill the project at the meeting with Primorye Governor Vladimir Miklushevsky on Thursday.
"We have an idea of building a high-speed rail to Vladivostok. By August, we will launch the leg to Hunchun. If we jointly manage to extend it, this will be the first high-speed trans-border main line between Russia and China," the first secretary of Jilin Provincial Committee of the CPC, Bayin Chaolu, said.
Miklushevsky said he planned to discuss this proposal with the head of the Russian Railways (RZD), Vladimir Yakunin.
The delegation of the Chinese province, including both officials and more than 50 representatives of various companies, has arrived in Primorye, in the Russian Far East, to participate in the Pacific Tourist Forum that opened in Vladivostok on Thursday.
In April, this project was already discussed at the meeting between the representatives of the Ministry for Development of the Russian Far East and the Jilin province.
