Korea's inspecteren spoorwegen van Noord in hoop netwerken samen te voegen

November 30, 2018 - Een Zuid-Koreaanse trein is voor het eerst in tien jaar de grens met Noord-Korea gepasseerd. De twee landen voeren samen inspecties uit van de noordelijke spoorwegen, die naar men hoopt ooit met Zuid worden verbonden.

The inspections represent one of the most significant goodwill gestures between the Koreas in past months as they push ahead with engagement amid a stalemate in larger negotiations between Washington and Pyongyang.

The Koreas plan to hold a groundbreaking ceremony by the end of the year on an ambitious project to connect their railways and roads as agreed by their leaders.

But beyond surveys and tape-cuttings, the Koreas cannot move much further along without the removal of U.S.-led sanctions against the North, which isn’t likely before it takes firmer steps toward relinquishing its nuclear weapons and missiles.
