MOSCOW, October 1. /TASS/. Russia hopes to promote trilateral projects in the energy sector with the participation of the DPRK (Democratic People’s Republic of Korea) and South Korea, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday.
“We discussed such project as an intermodal trans-shipment complex in the port of Rajin. The complex has been recently created and co-sponsored by Russian Railways,” Lavrov said. “It is starting to function. This is a pilot part of the project discussed in the three-party format — North Korea, South Korea and Russia. This is the project for connecting the Trans-Siberian Railway and the Trans-Korean Main Line,” he said. “We’ll promote other three-party projects as well,” Lavrov added.
“We hope to involve our South Korean partners. If positive results are achieved, this will open the way to implement other tripartite projects, including the handover of Russian energy to South Korea from Russia via the DPRK and Russian energy carriers export to North Korea via South Korea,” he said.
