Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo meets with Foreign Minister of Denmark Jeppe Kofod and Minister of Education, Culture, Church, and Foreign Affairs of Greenland Ane Lone Bagger, at the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., on November 13, 2019.

Foreign Ministers of Denmark and Greenland and Jeppe Kofod and Ane Lone Bagger traveled to Washington to meet with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. This was reported on November 12 by the radio station Kalaallit Nunaata Radioa.

As stated in a statement by the Danish Foreign Ministry, the purpose of the trip is to continue dialogue with the United States on developments in the Arctic and Greenland. The Danish diplomatic office also notes that it welcomes the participation of the United States in Greenland’s projects.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump said he was considering buying the largest island in the world – Greenland, which belongs to Denmark. After the Danish authorities called the discussion “absurd,” Trump canceled his visit to Copenhagen.

It also became known that Washington plans to open a consulate in Greenland. While the authorities intend to increase cooperation with the United States, island residents fear Trump’s policies.
