Greenland reacts with horror at Trump plan to buy island
STEPANAKERT, AUGUST 16, ARTSAKHPRESS: The US president has suggested purchasing the vast Arctic territory on numerous occasions with staff after hearing about its natural resources and geopolitical importance, according to the Wall Street Journal.
He has even reportedly asked his White House counsel to explore the idea, although it remains unclear how negotiations would be carried out.
But residents in Greenland’s capital Nuuk met the proposal with short shrift.
“No thanks to Trump buying Greenland!” tweeted Aaja Chemnitz Larsen, a Greenlandic politician representing one of two seats for the island in the Danish parliament.
