The Chinese authorities are ready to take part in the construction of a bridge that connects the Peschany Peninsula in the Russian city of Vladivostok and the Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in Northeast China, RIA Novosti reports with reference to the city Mayor's office.
On May 8, negotiations were held between the Mayor of Vladivostok Vitaly Verkeenko and a delegation of the Yanbian-Korean Autonomous Prefecture of China. The parties discussed the prospects for cooperation, in particular, such projects as Primorye 1 and Primorye 2, including the construction of a bridge between Russia and China.
As noted in the press release of the Mayor's office of Vladivostok, the Chinese authorities confirmed their interest in the project. “This transit route will allow to form the shortest routes of cargo delivery from the northeastern provinces of China to the ports of Vladivostok, as well as to increase the bilateral tourist flow,” the document says.
