As reported by Reuters, during a press conference alongside Danish foreign minister Jeppe Kofod, Greenland’s premier Mute Egede, and foreign minister Pele Broberg, Blinken confirmed that it was “correct” that US no longer wanted to buy Greenland.
The topic was reportedly handled in good humour with Broberg adding that Blinken’s visit did not have any real estate intentions behind it. He said: “A real estate deal means land with nothing on it, nobody on it. Secretary Blinken has made it clear that he’s here for the people living in the Arctic, for the people living in Greenland.”
Well, at least that bizarre little story is now behind us and the people of Greenland can sleep easy knowing their nation isn’t about to become the world’s biggest building site.
