Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Were you serious? Everything sounds so wrong, I don't know where to start. But in this you are right: Japan will ship through Arctic before it will happen through Transsib. As for Transsib as internal trading route, it works already.

For this entire thread and your comment, keywords to look up: cost of shipping via sea and rail, insurance, energy costs, landlocked countries, Axes of Evil and Turkmenistan.

What the shipping costs are for shipping from Japan to Vladivistok, Russia vs Haifa, Israel?

You think Turkmenistan would pose more problems to freight traffic than Belarus? But there is already some through traffic to Iran, along the border crossing line completed in the nineties.

Axes of Evil

I don't believe in axes of evil. Apparently Putin's government doesn't either, or they wouldn't pursue that project with Iran and Azerbaijan to create a North-South corridor.

Cost, or price? If the latter, roughly the same?
