Moscow – Kazan is first stage of large-scale transport project

Xi Jinping, the Chairman of the People's Republic of China, paid an official visit to Russia. During the visit, the delegations of the two countries had negotiations and signed a number of agreements. Among other things, Moscow-Kazan HSR project was discussed as the first link of the large-scale Eurasian high-speed rail corridor Europe-Russia-Asia.
Russia is China's key player in the global Chinese initiative "The Belt and Road" (B&R). This is a modern interpretation of the ancient Silk Road, which should unite the entire transport and infrastructure network throughout Eurasia. The construction of the Russian section of the Europe-West China highway should be completed in 2019, and the construction of Moscow-Kazan HSR can be started in 2018," said Minister of Transport Maksim Sokolov to Channel One Russia. The Chinese have already finished the section of the road on their territory.
"We are not talking about a single project between Moscow and Kazan, we are talking about the fact that this is the first stage, the first link of the large-scale Eurasian high-speed railway corridor Beijing-Kazakhstan-Russia-Moscow-Minsk, Belarus-Western Europe, Berlin. The length of this corridor is 10 thousand kilometers," Maksim Sokolov said.
