    Default Iceland and China to Become Neighbors?

    Iceland and China can become neighboring states in the next five to ten years with the opening of the sailing route through the Arctic, according to Dr. Jiang Ye, director of the Shanghai Institute of International Studies, at a conference on Arctic affairs in Reykjavík yesterday.

    Greenland’s Prime Minister has warned that the EU could miss out on having access to the territory’s newly uncovered mineral wealth. Kuupik Kleist said last week in an interview with Reuters that he has the ability to end a preliminary agreement that will protect the EU’s right to the country’s lucrative rare earths and other resources, noting that European officials have not bothered to follow through with the deal.

    Dr. Jiang Ye has been drinking too much baijiu. It doesn't matter how many Arctic routes are opened up, China and Iceland will not be neighbouring states.

    Would be good for trade though surely? They would have to cut through Baffin Bay and then the Bering Straight, all extremely choppy waters.
