Greenland With New Arctic Strategy

On Wednesday, the Greenlandic government, naalakkersuisut, presented its new foreign, security, and defense policy strategy for 2024-2033.

That is reported by KNR.

Naalakkersuisut wants closer ties to the Arctic parts of North America; Alaska and the Arctic Canada with Yukon, Northwest Territories, and Nunavut. Naalakkersuisut proposes the establishment of a new political forum called the Arctic North American Forum.

Greenland also wants the Arctic to remain a low-tension area, and naalakkersuisut writes that there is a need to strengthen peace with a peace center in Greenland.

Also in the future, Greenland will cooperate with Denmark and NATO as close allies, but wants to influence the decisions and knowledge about the Arctic in NATO to a greater extent.

The strategy also goes into the development of civil preparedness, critical infrastructure, and that there is no desire for a larger military presence in Greenland.
