Information
Just a century ago, Korea was the departure point for the Trans-Asian Railway (Eurasian Landbridge). Should the railways of the two Koreas be connected, we can dream of extending it beyond Pyeongyang, to Beijing, Moscow and finally to Europe. The departure station for future generations should be here in PyeongChang. Recognizing that peace can finally arrive when the inter-Korean train departs, the two Koreas should swiftly resume the inter-Korean railway reconnection project. This year requires a more active and creative approach. The South and the North, as members of the Organization for Cooperation of Railways (OSJD), should promptly refurbish existing lanes and start running trains to Beijing and Moscow. Not only humanitarian aid, but also the reunion of divided families, sports and cultural exchanges, and even inter-Korean summit meetings can be done via this inter-Korean railway. The peace train can depart from the PyeongChang International Station and arrive in Beijing for Beijing 2022. With the two Koreas sharing the success of the inter-Korean railway, mutual trust will be recovered and the framework for cooperation will be strengthened.
