Russia and Finland are studying the possible construction of high-speed railway communication between Moscow and Helsinki, the press office of Russian state railway conglomerate Russian Railways (RZD) said Monday

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 20th January, 2020) Russia and Finland are studying the possible construction of high-speed railway communication between Moscow and Helsinki, the press office of Russian state railway conglomerate Russian Railways (RZD) said Monday.

The statement comes following a working visit by a Finnish delegation to Moscow last week headed by Minister for Development Cooperation and Foreign Trade Ville Skinnari, which included a meeting with RZD Director General Oleg Belozyorov.

"The Finnish side raised the subject of a Helsinki-Moscow high speed railway. It was decided to exchange information on the progress of infrastructure projects in terms of high speeds," RZD"s press service said in a communique released on Monday.

The delegation"s trip was made to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the Allegro - Helsinki-St.

Skinnari had earlier announced, as corroborated by the RZD press service from January 16, that the Finnish side was also explored two-way transportation of goods and raw material between Finland and the Asia-Pacific nations via Russian railways and developing the Scandinavian route and a leading Europe-Asia trade route.
