Greenland is not for sale, said Greenland’s FM Ane Lone Bagger commenting on the US President Donald Trump’s statement.
“We are open for business, but we’re not for sale,” Greenland’s FM Ane Lone Bagger told Reuters.
Trump is due to visit Copenhagen in September, and the Arctic will be on the agenda during meetings with the prime ministers of Denmark and Greenland, the autonomous territory of Denmark.
The talks on buying in Greenland was first published in the Wall Street Journal. Two sources familiar with the situation told Reuters that some advisers laughed at the joke, but others at the White House took it more seriously.
