Surely, the fact that Greenland continues to prioritize economic relationship with China because of Beijing's active support of Greenland's struggle for independence from Denmark (www.euractiv.com/specialreport-rawmaterials/china-greenland-challenge-europe-) should really put on the alert of the whole Europe now. See for yourself!
Starting from the funding of Arctic research, China has quickly advanced in its struggle for Arctic riches thanks to its liberal investments in Greenland's economy... And in result of so foxy strategy the country, which is located almost 900 miles from the Arctic Circle, has been recently granted the permanent observer status (www.theatlantic.com/china/archive/2013/05/) at the Arctic Council!
Thus, now Beijing has got an excellent chance not only to control Greenland's Arctic sector, contained over 10 percent of the world's undiscovered oil reserves, but also to take an active part in debates regarding the further fate of the whole Arctic!
So, in fact, the open-door policy towards Chinese financial aid in the Arctic development leads to total loss of EU control over situation with Arctic exploitation, right? At this rate soon those of our Nordic nations, who will agree to sell the Arctic to these Chinese bags, will finally lose own influence in the Arctic region, even being permanent members of the Arctic Council!
