17 Août, 2019, 14:22 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

On Thursday, The Wall Street Journal reported that "in meetings, at dinners and in passing conversations, Mr. Trump has asked advisers whether the US can acquire Greenland", the largest island in the world which has been part of Denmark since the early 18th century.

"In continued close cooperation with the government of Afghanistan, we remain committed to achieving a comprehensive peace agreement, including a reduction in violence and a cease-fire, ensuring that Afghan soil is never again used to threaten the United States or her allies, and bringing Afghans together to work towards peace", the statement said.

The president, a former real estate magnate, has been curious about the area's natural resources and geopolitical relevance, the paper reported. "Denmark provides security to the island and all the resources belong to Greenlanders".

Washington has said it wants a peace deal finalized by September 1, and some USA officials have hinted at the possibility that the Afghan presidential election set for September 28 could be canceled in the event of a peace settlement and the formation of an interim government that the Taliban would join.

The country's foreign ministry insisted that it was "open for business, but not for sale".

The office of Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen declined to comment when contacted by AFP.

But a former premier, Lars Lokke Rasmussen, tweeted: "It must be an April Fool's Day joke. but totally out of season!"

Greenland locals were similarly bemused by the report. "You can't just sell people like slaves anymore. People are laughing at the moment".

Qulusuk has around 280 inhabitants, most of whom make their living from hunting and fishing, but groups of American tourists come to the village during the summer months.

The U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to meet with senior U.S. officials to review a potential peace plan with Taliban.

The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Mr. Trump has repeatedly expressed interest in purchasing the autonomous territory from Denmark.

Surprisingly, this isn't the first time the US has tried to buy Greenland before: the State Department looked into purchasing the island in 1867, and President Harry Truman offered Denmark $100 million to buy it in 1946. "As someone who loves Greenland, has been there nine times to every corner and loves the people, this is a complete and total catastrophe". "They tried after World War II", Ipsen said.

July and August saw unprecedented melting of the Greenland ice sheet.
