China to open high-speed link near N Korea border, Xinhua says

China will open a high-speed rail link in August 2015 to the Liaoning city of Dandong on the border with North Korea, Xinhua reported Thursday. The 207-kilometer line between Shenyang and Dandong will cut travel time between the centers to one hour from about 3.5 hours, the report said. Dandong is a key gateway for the two countries, with more than 70 percent of Chinese goods and most Chinese tourists entering North Korea via the city.
