Canada calls on Russia to cooperate in the Arctic
Canada and Russia can and should cooperate in the Arctic, despite the differences that exist between countries on certain political issues, says the head of the Canadian Foreign Ministry, John Byrd. In his opinion, the challenges and problems facing the countries are pushing them to cooperate in the Arctic.
“On the Arctic and other issues, we can and must work together. I have developed a professional relationship with my Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov, ”concluded the Canadian Foreign Minister.
Recall, previously the Government of Canada filed a preliminary application to the UN to expand its borders on the Arctic shelf right up to the North Pole. Russia plans to apply for an extension of the boundaries of the continental shelf in 2014. Similar documents in the United Nations have already been submitted by Norway and Denmark.
