Interesting facts about this location
North Korea–Russia border
Russia and North Korea share a 17 km border along the Tumen River. The border was created in 1860, when Russia took land from China in an unequal treaty. The border area was regarded as peripheral within Russia in much of its history, only to regain some importance during the Korean War, as a transport route of weapons and aid from the Soviet Union to North Korea. According to a Wikileaks cable from 2009, the border appears to be lightly militarized.
