US stance on Arctic is ‘dangerous’, says Sweden’s foreign minister

The Financial Times published an article titled, “US stance on Arctic is ‘dangerous’, says Sweden’s foreign minister”. The article reads in part as follows:

Sweden’s foreign minister has lashed out at the US’s “sad and dangerous” approach to the Arctic, warning of a risk to decades of co-operation with the likes of Russia and China in the far north.

Margot Wallstrom told the Financial Times that US president Donald Trump’s offer to buy the Arctic island of Greenland from Denmark “sounded like a joke” and “was a shock”.
