The administration of Joe Biden is not considering the possibility of acquiring Greenland, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken said.
After a corresponding question, Blinken stated, вЂњ The short answer is no.вЂќ He noted theвЂќ outstanding partnership вЂњ with Copenhagen, which Washington intends to strengthen. According to him, the United States is not opposed to вЂњChina or anyone elseвЂќ expanding economic ties with Greenland. However, China, as the head of the State Department said, must comply with the rules adopted in the world community. The US also insists on protecting theвЂќ most 'sensitive' industries and technologiesвЂќ of the West.
Blinken assured that вЂњBiden is an Atlanticist at heartвЂќ, who highly values NATO and the idea of collective defense of the alliance. At the same time, Washington believes that all NATO members should вЂњmake the necessary investmentsвЂќ by increasing defense spending.
Recall that Donald Trump, when he was president of the United States, asked his aides whether the United States could buy Greenland. Trump said it would be interesting from a strategic point of view.
