Coreias inspecionam vias do norte na esperança de ligarem as redes
November 30, 2018 -
Um comboio sulcoreano atravessou a fronteira para o norte pela primeira
vez numa década, quando os dois países fazem inspeções conjuntas
dos troços do norte que esperam poder vir a ligar com o sul.
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.
