Gas will join the two Koreas
A new Russian project could contribute to the unification of the two Koreas, courtesy of a PNG (Pipeline Natural Gas) streaming through the frontiers.
The first feasibility study started in 2011, when Gazprom planned a new pipeline reaching Seoul. But reaching the Southern Korean city would mean reach first the North Korea and the exacerbation of political and military situation froze the plan for years.
Now it is time for changing: the recent visit in Peking of the North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un opens real possibilities for reaching a historical agreement for a reunification of the two countries or at least starting a new deal.
This new deal will surely pass through energy: as history teaches, energy is a powerful prime mover for technical and social progress.
