China (!) is considering rail-links to EU

Apparently, the government of the People's Republic of China is studying the feasibility of the construction of a high-speed rail link to the EU. I love this: It is not that the "EU is considering . . .", no. The PRC is considering. We really are living in new and interesting times.

Three branches are planned, one in the south (through India, Pakistan and west Asia), and another in the north, through Russia, toward Germany. A third branch would extend in China's south to Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia.

Perhaps it could be called . . . hm, oh, I don't know, maybe . . . I got it: The Silk Route?
