U.S. eyes Greenland consulate amid increased interest

Establishing a consulate in Greenland would "would serve as an effective platform to advance US interests in Greenland" and to "protect essential equities there", the AP reported the letter as saying, "while developing deeper relationships with Greenlandic officials and society".

It said the consulate would be "a critical component of our efforts to increase United States presence in the Arctic and would serve as an effective platform to advance U.S. interests in Greenland".

"We had a great conversation", Trump told reporters as he prepared to leave for the G7 summit in France.

The prime minister of Denmark refuses to sell Greenland to the U.S.

He called her a very nice woman, and said the US has a very good relationship with Denmark.

President Donald Trump sparked a diplomatic dispute with Denmark earlier this month after he proposed that the US buy Greenland and the Danish government rejected the idea. But she was very nice.

The US leader said he got a call from Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, who he had previously called "nasty" when she rejected his idea of buying Greenland in the latest spat involving Trump and a traditional US ally. It closed in 1953.

The AP reported that the letter said there is already a Greenlandic affairs officer in the existing U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen, and plans include hiring local staff in Greenland to work at the consulate there.

Experts say establishing a greater USA presence in Greenland is not unwarranted, despite the awkward roll out of Mr Trump's idea to buy the semi-autonomous Danish territory.

Greenland is situated in a geographically important region and holds a potential treasure trove of natural gas and rare earth minerals.

Experts have said that Washington's interest in Greenland is likely part of a broader strategy to better compete with Russian Federation and China in the strategically important region.
