SKorea’s Park offers North ‘opportunity’ with rail link


SEOUL: South Korean President Park Geun-Hye offered North Korea a “door of opportunity” as she flagged off restoration work Wednesday on a railway line that could one day link both Koreas with Europe via the Trans-Siberian. The work will focus on the South’s section of a disconnected inter-Korean railroad that once linked central Seoul with the North Korean eastern city of Wonsan. South Korea hopes to reconnect the line and link it to Russia’s Trans-Siberian Railway, an ambitious project that would cut logistics costs for trade with Europe.
