Jan S. Krogh's Geosite: China - North Korea - Russia (CNKPRU) Tripoint Border Area Maps

This Chinese map seems to be correct according to the Treaty Draft and according to a Chinese-North Korean condominium north of the bridge. 2)

The best recently published map over the Korean-Russian River Tumen border area we managed to find is this. The river border between Khasan and the Sea of Japan is divided.  We know most river islands according to the treaty are Korean. 3)
