In a visit to Northern Norway U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asserts her country’s interest in the Arctic

Clinton’s aim was to emphasize that the U.S. is keeping its eye on the Arctic and remains very keen, according to a recent Reuters report.

Testifying earlier in May before the U.S. Senate, Clinton said that as the Arctic warmed: “It is more important that we put our navigational rights on a treaty footing and have a larger voice in the interpretation and development of the rules. You will see China, India, Brazil, you-name-it, all vying for navigational rights and routes through the Arctic."

The visit is part of an eight-day trip to Scandinavia, the Caucasus and Turkey.
