The authorities of the Chinese city of Lanzhou, located in Northern Gansu province, are considering the possibility of building a pipeline to supply water from the Russian Lake Baikal, TASS news agency reports.


Such a project would solve the problem of water shortage in the arid region of China, where the annual rainfall is only 380 mm of precipitation, the newspaper notes. It is assumed that the pipeline with the length of 1,000 km would start from the south-western tip of the lake, pass through the territory of Mongolia, Hexi mountain pass to Lanzhou.

The project’s initiators expect to offer it for discussion to the Russian party after its feasibility study is completed.
