A delegation from a South Korean consortium will visit North Korea this week for discussions on a joint railway project between Pyongyang and Moscow.
A South Korean government official said Sunday that 18 officials from the state-run rail operator KORAIL, steelmaker POSCO and Hyundai Merchant Marine will visit North Korea's northeastern port city Rajin for a field study for three days from Tuesday.
The South Korean consortium will enter North Korea via the Russian city of Vladivostok with Russian officials also taking part in the project.
The envisioned 54-kilometer railway line will run between the Russian border town of Khasan and the North Korean port city of Rajin.
South Korea's involvement is part of President Park Geun-hye's push to link energy and logistics infrastructure across the continent.
