This article reports on the intentions of Russia, China and South Korea to invest in transportation links and energy resources for the North Korea port city of Rajin in 2008. China has also sought a railway link between Rajin and Hunchun, in Jilin Province, bordering North Korea.

Russia and South Korea have agreed on the proposed rail link, but the two sides remain at odds over how to share the costs.
