During a meeting with Peru's President Humala, Xi noted the three countries are expected to issue a joint statement later in the day on the railway project, which will run all the way from the Peruvian Pacific coast to the Brazilian Atlantic coast.

Moreover, the Chinese leader proposed that a trilateral work group be established to navigate their cooperation in all related aspects, including the planning, design, construction and operation of the transcontinental rail.

BRASILIA, July 17 (Xinhua) -- China, Brazil and Peru on Thursday released a joint statement pledging concerted efforts to build a railway that runs across the South American continent.
The document came after a meeting here Wednesday of Chinese President Xi Jinping and his Brazilian and Peruvian counterparts, Dilma Rousseff and Ollanta Humala.
The three leaders, said the statement, exchanged views on boosting the construction of transport infrastructure in South America and promoting the connection between South American and Asian markets.
They highlighted their shared commitment to tapping into their cooperation potential and connecting the two South American countries' rail networks.
According to the statement, the leaders instructed relevant departments in their respective governments to carry out a feasibility study on the project, which is aimed at linking the Brazilian Atlantic coast with the Peruvian Pacific coast.
The three countries are to specify the approaches and resources available for the project and set a time frame, said the statement, adding that they also agreed to facilitate the deployment of technical teams to conduct on-site surveys within their respective laws and regulations.
Should the project be deemed feasible, they will carry out further studies on how to proceed, according to the statement.
In his separate talks with Rousseff and Humala, Xi stressed Beijing's readiness to expand win-win cooperation in infrastructure construction with Latin American countries, and called for concerted efforts in building the transcontinental South American railway into a success.
He proposed that a trilateral work group be established to navigate their cooperation in all related aspects, including the planning, design, construction and operation of the rail.
Both Rousseff and Humala expressed their countries' willingness to work on the project, which they said will contribute not only to the development of their countries but to that of the whole region.

RIO DE JANEIRO, July 27 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping's recent trip to Latin America, the second in 13 months, demonstrated the important role Latin America plays in China's overall diplomacy and brought new opportunity to the bilateral ties.
During Xi's trip on July 15-23, he attended the sixth summit of BRICS nations - Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa - and a conference with Latin American and Caribbean leaders. He also paid state visits to Brazil, Argentina, Venezuela and Cuba.
Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff said her meeting with Xi, nearly three hours long, had yielded "exciting" results, stressing that bilateral trade between China and Brazil surpassed 90 billion U.S. dollars in 2013.
China, Brazil and Peru will cooperate to construct a railway running from the Peruvian Pacific coast to the Brazilian Atlantic coast.
The transcontinental railway will play an important role in promoting Brazil's economic growth and lifting regional development, Rousseff said, pledging to "work together with China and Peru to build this project into a satisfactory one."
Against the backdrop of the global economic downturn, enhancing economic exchanges between China and Brazil is extremely important, Rousseff said, adding that the two economies are developing in a stable, bright and strategic fashion through Chinese investment in Brazil and deepening cooperation in a wide range of areas.
She said the increasing diversified investment from China will bring Brazil and other Latin American countries a promising future.
Francisco Mauro Brasil de Holanda, director of the East Asia Department in the Brazilian Foreign Ministry, said the great amount of Chinese investment has turned from areas of mining, soybean and oil in the beginning to high technology, car manufacturing and heavy equipment.
The most anticipated cooperation with China is in infrastructure, especially railways and ports, Mauro said.
China owns a mature technological system in infrastructure construction and has achieved great accomplishments in the area, which is exactly what Latin American countries including Brazil long for, he added.
Murilo Ferreira, CEO of Brazil's Vale, the world's largest producer and exporter of iron ore, is optimistic about the China-Brazil cooperative relations in the new era.
At the Annual Meeting of China-Brazil Entrepreneurs Committee in July, Ferreira said China is a long-term strategic partner, whose economic development has provided Brazilian mining exports with great opportunity.
Severino Cabral, director of the Brazilian Institute for China and Asia-Pacific Studies, said Xi's trip was beneficial for Latin America's politics, diplomacy and economy in 2014.
The consensus reached between Chinese and Latin American leaders will help coordinate concerned parties to build a democratic, multipolar new political and economic order in the world, Cabral said.
It will also help solve thorny issues in security and economic development that developing countries have encountered since the beginning of this century, he said.

BEIJING, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Xi Jinping held talks with visiting Peruvian President Ollanta Humala Tasso on Wednesday.
Xi recalled Humala's visit to China last year during which they announced the upgrading of bilateral ties to a comprehensive strategic partnership.
Xi urged both countries to enhance high-level contact and exchanges between governments, legislative organizations and parties; the promotion and development of a bilateral free trade area; and the cementing of cooperation in areas such as trade, energy, mining, infrastructure and agriculture.
China will actively participate in the construction of a railway running from the Peruvian Pacific coast to the Brazilian Atlantic coast, Xi said.
The president vowed to play a constructive role in the upcoming UN-sponsored Climate Change Conference to be held in Lima, the Peruvian capital, in December.
The first ministerial meeting of a forum between China and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States will be held in Beijing next year. Xi called for joint efforts with Peru to prepare for the meeting, which aims to boost stronger China-Latin America cooperation.
Humala congratulated Xi for hosting a successful Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Economic Leaders' Meeting, vowing to work with China on the establishment of an Asia-Pacific free trade area.
He pledged enhanced cooperation with China to cope with various global challenges.
Peru welcomes Chinese companies to participate in the country's infrastructure building and mine, gas and hydroelectric exploration works, he said.
Humala expressed his willingness to step up exchanges with China in such areas as culture, education and training.
After their talks, the two presidents witnessed the signing of several cooperation agreements including the setting up of a China-Peru-Brazil working group on the construction of a railway from the Peruvian Pacific coast to the Brazilian Atlantic coast.
Humala arrived in Beijing early Monday morning to attend the APEC meeting and pay a working visit to China.
