Postcards from Greenland
President Trump's proposal for the United States to buy Greenland from Denmark has met with surprise and a sharp rebuff from Copenhagen, with Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen calling the idea "absurd."

An iceberg floats in a fjord near Tasiilaq, Greenland
An iceberg floats in a fjord near Tasiilaq. Greenland is strategically important for the U.S. military and its ballistic missile early-warning system since the shortest route from Europe to North America runs via the Arctic island. The United States maintains an air base in Thule in Greenland's northwest under a 1951 treaty with Denmark. Pictures taken June 2018. REUTERS/Lucas Jackson

Snow covered mountains rise above the harbour and town of Tasiilaq. Greenland lacks basic infrastructure for its tiny population of 56,000. There are no roads between the country's 17 towns and only one commercial international airport, forcing people to travel by sea or air.

A young boy plays on a trampoline in the town of Tasiilaq. Since 2009 Greenland has held the right to declare independence from Denmark. If Greenland do so, it could choose to become associated with the United States. But few Greenlanders see independence as viable given their economic dependence on Denmark, part of the affluent European Union. REUTERS/Lucas Jackson

Sunshine lights up the Helheim glacier near Tasiilaq. When Greenland was still a colony and the Cold War with the Soviet Union was escalating, the United States under then-President Harry Truman sought to buy the island as a strategic asset, but Copenhagen declined to sell.

A man walks along the road in the evening sunshine through the town of Tasiilaq, Greenland. The Arctic region sits at a geopolitical intersection of renewed rivalry between world powers China, Russia and the United States, and - with its melting ice cap - is a major symbol of the growing impact of climate change.

Glaciers wind their way through mountains on the way to the coast above eastern Greenland
Glaciers wind their way through mountains on the way to the coast above eastern Greenland. Washington wants a greater military presence in Greenland to better defend its Thule Air Base and enhance surveillance of the waters between the island and the European continent.
The Thule base mainly operates a missile warning system as well as space and satellite surveillance.

A glacial terminus is seen above the east coast of Greenland. The island, whose capital Nuuk is closer to New York than the Danish capital Copenhagen, boasts mineral, oil and natural gas wealth.
