North Korea will gain from Russian gas pipeline from Far East to South Korea. As a transit territory for Russian gas supply, Democratic People’s Republic of Korea will get about $ 100 million a year, said Viktor Ishaev, the Russian president's envoy to the Far East.
"It would be a huge sum for a country with annual gross product of $10 billion. Moreover, the country would have to make no big effort to get it," said the state man.
In August Russia and North Korea reached an agreement to draw up a project to build a gas pipeline to South Korea. The pipeline cost is estimated as much as $6 billion.
