North Korea builds new rail route to handle Chinese freight during pandemic

This article was originally published by Radio Free Asia and is reprinted with permission. North Korea has built a new rail route to its border with China designed to isolate freight in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus, an important first step toward restarting imports from its largest trading partner, sources in the country told RFA. Prior to the pandemic freight from China would travel from North Korea’s northwestern border city of Sinuiju to Seopo Station in Pyongyang. The new route links Sinuiju, a port city across the Sino-Korean border from China, with a processing and quarantine facility in Uiju, about 10 miles to the northeast. “Construction on the railroad between Sinuiju and Uiju, which began in October last year, was completed in time for the Day of the Sun,” a resident of Uiju told RFA’s Korean Service Monday, referring to the April 15 birth anniversary of leader Kim Jong Un’s grandfather, national founder Kim Il Sung (1912-1994). “The new railroad is directly connected to the Sino-Korean Friendship Bridge between Dandong, China and Sinuiju, and it will be used exclusively for international freight,” said the source who requested anonymity for security reasons. Freight has not flowed freely from China for more than a year. At the start of the coronavirus pandemic in January 2020, Beijing and Pyongyang closed down the entirety of the 880-mile Sino-Korean border and suspended all trade in a move that proved disastrous to the North Korean economy. Many in North Korea who made their living through the purchase and sale of goods from China were left with no way to support themselves.  With the people clamoring for an end to the trade ban as their situations become increasingly dire, and the government prioritizing emergency measures against the spread of the virus, the new train route

Lost for decades, a World War II hero finally comes home

The word came in the morning, as Grace Cruz and her children gathered at the family home in Boyle Heights on Christmas Eve, 1943. Her oldest son, Jacob, was dead. A telegram from the United States Marines said the 18-year-old private was killed in action but divulged little else. The ongoing Pacific campaign meant Jacob would be buried in a temporary grave in the Tarawa atoll, where he and more than 1,000 other Marines and sailors died fighting the Imperial Japanese Army. Weeks turned into months and into years. The military finally admitted it couldn’t find Jacob’s burial place. His name was etched at the Courts of the Missing at the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific in Hawaii. Jacob’s family tried to honor him for the rest of their lives. Grace opened a diner named after him in Boyle Heights and kept his letters, newspaper clippings of his death and his medals — a Purple Heart and Silver Star, among others — in a cosmetics case. His four siblings shared stories of their brother with their own children, some of whom joined the military. Nephews who never knew their tío tattooed their arms and legs with his name and face and years of life. Grace died in 1974, and Jacob’s siblings followed until only two, Isaac Cruz Jr. and Ruth Soto, were left. Tears eventually dried, replaced by a longing for closure the family assumed would never come. Then, in April of last year, Ruth’s daughter, Ruthie, received a phone call at work: Jacob was coming home. The news was so impossible to believe that she hung up mid-conversation to gather herself. Born in Arizona, Jacob Cruz moved to Boyle Heights with his family in the 1930s. As the oldest son, it was his job to help out his

Sens. Rubio, Cruz Unveil Bill to Block Foreign Adversaries From Purchasing Land Near Military Bases

Two Republican senators on Wednesday unveiled legislation that seeks to block China and other foreign adversaries from purchasing land near U.S. military bases. The bill, named the Protecting Military Installations and Ranges Act of 2021 (pdf), is led by Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas). It would require the the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) to probe whether buyers who purchase land near a military installation in the United States have ties to China or other adversaries. Reps. Ronny Jackson (R-Texas), Tony Gonzales (R-Texas), and Pat Fallon (R-Texas) introduced companion legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives. The bill would amend part of the Defense Production Act of 1950, and seeks to “prohibit adversaries from acquiring land near military bases, which they could use to monitor U.S. armed forces activities and put military installations at risk,” a release states. “This legislation would restrict any effort …
