BEIJING, Feb 7 (FAM) – China is expected to supply next-generation bullet trains capable of traveling at 400 km per hour for Russia’s Moscow-Kazan line by 2020, which could enhance the country’s position as the world’s leader in high-speed rail products and services, said an expert working on the project.

The line, which is expected to be about 770 kilometers long and will run through seven Russian regions with a total population of more than 25 million, will use regular high-speed trains rather than magnetic levitation trains, China Daily reports.
