Canada to lay claim to North Pole amid Arctic resources rush

Published: 12.09.13, 22:01 / Israel News

Canada intends to lay claim to the North Pole as part of a bid to assert control over a large part of the resource-rich Arctic, Foreign Minister John Baird said on Monday. Baird said Canada had filed a preliminary submission to a special United Nations commission collecting competing claims and would be submitting more data later.

 

The move could raise tensions with Denmark and Russia, both of which also look set to lay claim to the North Pole on the grounds it lies on a continental shelf they control. (Reuters)
