Abstract

Amid the escalating nuclear threats from North Korea and increasing tension in the region, the two Koreas, South and North, are diligently working to reconnect Trans-Korean Railway that has been severed since the Korean War. This rail connection would link the Trans-Korean Railway (TKR) with the Trans-Siberian Railway (TSR) and Trans-China Railway (TCR), creating the Eurasian Railroad or so called “Iron Silk Road” that links Northeast Asia to Europe for the first time in history by land. The creation of this Eurasian land-bridge will not only help reduce transit time and transportation costs but also mark the beginning of an era of region-wide cooperation and development.
