The Borderless Experience: China-North Korea-Russia Tripoint
The intersection of the China-Russia border and the North Korea-Russia border is known as the China-North Korea-Russia tripoint. The tripoint is located in the Tumen River, less than 2,000 meters from Khasan, a Russian village, and about 500 meters upstream of the Korea-Russia Friendship Bridge. It is to no surprise that the three countries once had a similar political ideology but it seems that they are connected geographically too, and this one through tripoint.
There is a treaty called the principal border treaty to specify the border that divides the three distinct countries, which is three granite shoreside markers. In the treaty, it the marker is described as “a straight line running along the perpendicular from border sign No. 423 on the Russian-Chinese state border to the line of the middle of the main channel of the Tumannaya River between both banks of the river,". The agreement instead stipulates that the three nations install border monuments on the riverbank, and that the position of the tripoint be determined with respect to those monuments, as the hypothetical tripoint is in the middle of the river, where it would be impractical to install a border monument.
Sometimes it is okay to have your own sets of ideology, principles and values, regardless of whether you share the same philosophy as your closed ones or not. Since the journey is ultimately yours to take, mould yourself however you feel is best to do. Because every step of the road is important to us.
