Pyongyang wants to connect two Koreas' railroads with Russia's help

VLADIVOSTOK. Sept 11 (Interfax) - North Korea has reiterated the need to implement a project to connect its railroads to those in South Korea.

"In order to meet the imperatives of our time, in order to bring about a change in the political and economic situation, it is necessary to fulfill the project to connect the railroads," North Korea's Deputy Minister of Railways Kim Yun Hyok said at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok on Tuesday.
