Copenhagen , Apr 24:US woos Greenland with financial aid package

Greenlanders said Thursday they welcome reports that the United States wants to invest in their island, but the money has to come without conditions.

This is an admitted move against Russian and Chinese Arctic supremacy, a worry for American global watch group experts.

The US administration is expected to announce the opening of a U.S. Agency for International Development office at the new American consulate in the capital, Nuuk, and at least $ 12 mn in new aid projects.

This will be rebirth of US engagement in Greenland as they did not have a diplomatic presence on the island since 1953.
