Statement on Improved Cooperation in Greenland


The United States has a long history of close cooperation with the Danish and Greenlandic governments based on our deep economic ties, strong defense partnership, and shared respect for democratic values, human rights, and the rule of law.

The Common Plan for U.S.-Greenland Cooperation in Support of Our Understanding for Pituffik (Thule Air Base) will strengthen our connections as it builds upon our cooperation in many areas for the mutual benefit of the Greenlandic and American peoples.

Please follow the links for more detailed information on this important milestone in our relationship with Greenland and the Kingdom of Denmark.
