S. Korea approves business consortium’s trip to N. Korea


The South Korean government has given officials
of a business consortium the green light to travel to North Korea for a project that involves
the two Koreas and Russia. The unification ministry says a team of 38
government officials and representatives from the consortium comprising three South Korean
companies will visit the North on Tuesday. The group is scheduled to stay there for a
week-long feasibility study on the so-called Rajin-Khasan logistics project.
The project, closely linked to South Korean President Park Geun-hye’s Eurasian Initiative,…
is designed to make the North Korean northeastern port city of Rajin a logistics hub by linking
it to Russia’s Trans-Siberian railway. This will be the second on-site inspection
since February.
