US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held phone talks with the Danish FM Jeppe Kofod over the postponed visit of US President Donald Trump, as well as over the strengthening of cooperation between the two countries, including in Greenland, BBC reported.
"The secretary expressed appreciation for Denmark's co-operation as one of the United States' allies and Denmark's contributions to address shared global security priorities," spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said in a statement. "The secretary and Foreign Minister Kofod also discussed strengthening co-operation with the Kingdom of Denmark - including Greenland - in the Arctic.”
This week, Danish PM Mette Frederiksen considers the US purchase of Greenland to be ‘absurd’. Then it became known that Trump postponed the meeting scheduled for early September with Frederiksen for an indefinite period due to her unwillingness to discuss the deal.
Danish Prime Minister, commenting on Trump’s decision to postpone the visit to Copenhagen, said that the US is still Denmark’s ally and there is no crisis between the states.
