Though the immediate past president of the United States wants to buy the Danish autonomous territory, however, the new administration is not interested in buying Greenland from Denmark in order to strengthen its relationship with Greenland, especially commercially.
This decision was made known by the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Thursday but stressed that the country’s government, unlike Donald Trump, doesn't want to buy it.
Blinken visited the Danish autonomous territory as he ended a four-day trip that included a meeting of the foreign ministers of countries bordering the Artic in Reykjavik.
“I am in Greenland because the United States deeply values our partnership and wants to make it even stronger,” Antony Blinken told reporters on his final stop of the Arctic tour.
Last year, the US reopened a consulate in Greenland’s capital Nuuk, and pledged $12 million in aid for civilian projects.
