“Greenland is not for sale”: Denmark ruined Trump's plans

Recently we Reported, as in the USA, once again, they started talking about buying Greenland from Denmark. And now, the media of this European kingdom conveyed the official point of view of Copenhagen on this matter.




It should be noted that Washington, over the past seven decades, has consistently held policies nurturing nationalism, and sectioning the local species of "patriots" in Greenland. This is the largest island on the planet, with an area of ​​over 2 million square meters. km., for many years was a colony of Denmark, but now, it is an administrative unit of this country. About 76 thousand people live on a huge island, while nationalists continue to fight for "freedom" and insist on the complete independence of Greenland from Denmark.

Regarding the official position of Copenhagen, the Prime Minister of the kingdom, Mette Frederiksen, has already told reporters that she considers the plans of the US President, Donald Trump, regarding Greenland to be a joke. She clarified that Greenland is not for sale.

Moreover, she emphasized that Greenland is “not Danish,” but “Greenland.” After which she expressed the hope that the talk about Trump’s desire to buy Greenland is not serious, and will not overshadow the relations between the countries.

At the same time, the Danish Foreign Minister, Eppe Kufood, said that Greenland is open for cooperation and trade, but it "is not for sale for dollars, rubles or other currency." He added that his country's official position on Greenland was already known to the international community.

It must be recalled that in Washington they recall Greenland at the most difficult moments for the United States. For example, in 1946, the island was urgently needed by the "peace-loving" American president Harry Truman, who wanted to use Greenland as a convenient platform for attacking the USSR. Then he offered Denmark $ 100 million, but Copenhagen did not appreciate this gesture.

By the way, Greenland might need Trump for several reasons. First of all, the island is really convenient for deploying missile defense and missiles with nuclear weapons. And after the termination of the INF Treaty, the practically uninhabited Greenland may become a convenient platform for their deployment. Indeed, continental and densely populated Europe does not burn with a desire to host the US nuclear potential, becoming the target for an “answer” from Russia. In addition, Denmark is important to the United States due to the delay in the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 project. So from Washington they could once again disturb Copenhagen for this reason.

    Well, that means that there are still those people who have a sense of self-esteem that cannot be bought for money.

    76 thousand US passports will be issued, and then marines will be introduced to protect US citizens who are threatened by the undemocratic Kingdom of Denmark (the Monarchy cannot be a democracy by default).

    Greenland is not for sale.

    This is the answer ... - The answer of the "mighty" Denmark "to the small and weak" USA ... - No matter what happens further, but today the Danish people clearly know - around "what" they need to rally ...
    - This is not the pitiful mumble and bleating of "small and weak" Russia during the many years of discussion with Japan on the "problem of territorial belonging" of the Russian Kuril Ridge ... - In discussing this issue, Russia is constantly bustling like in a frying pan ... and moves away from direct answer ... - "here we need to decide", "we need to discuss", "we need to conclude (a peace treaty)", "are ready to hold a referendum", "Russia is ready to hand over two islands", "we need to find a common point of view" and so on ... and so on ... - All this simply erodes the common opinion of the Russian people on this issue, prepares it for the fact that at "one fine moment" - it will be put "before the fact" ... ... Russian islands ...
    - Of course .., Greenland and the Kuril ridge ... are "two big differences"; there, and various topics are touched upon ... - Rather, the "theme of Greenland" can be compared with the "theme" of the once Russian Alaska ...
    - But, at present, the Danes at least have a common opinion and it coincides with the opinion (and answer) of the Danish government ...
    But the Russians today do not have such a solution to the "Kuril issue" ... - some recent "crafty statements" by the Minister of Foreign Affairs S. V. Lavrov; then "ready to continue the discussion"; then Japan will be "offered and provided" jointly with Russia "development of the Russian Kuril Islands", etc ... etc ... etc ...
    This is how "mighty Denmark" would start the same "conversation" with the United States about Greenland today ... Yes, it would be just ... - Hahah ...
