Prothom Alo published an article titled, “Five Arctic nations back ‘peaceful’ dialogue over disputes”. The article reads in part as follows:
The five nations bordering the Arctic Ocean on Tuesday reaffirmed their commitment made in Greenland a decade ago to “peacefully” settle their differences over the resource-rich region threatened by climate change.
Ministers and senior officials from the United States, Canada, Russia, Denmark and Norway gathered for a two-day meeting in western Greenland’s coastal town of Ilulissat, where the initial declaration was signed on May 28, 2008.
The countries hope dialogue will resolve conflicts over the sovereignty of territories, strategic maritime passages, environmental protection and fishing.
