MOSCOW, July 13. /TASS/. Russia’s interests of expanding the continental shelf limits in the Arctic Ocean cross over interests of Denmark and Canada, Minister of Natural Resources Sergey Donskoi said on Wednesday on the air with Rossiya 24 TV Channel.
"We have disagreements with Denmark. They presented their vision of the Arctic shelf and this vision intersects with our application. Intersections are also possible with Canada. We will additionally work with them," the minister said.
No obstacles to presentation of an application to the UN for new Arctic shelf areas exist, as evidenced by a relevant note, Donskoi said.
"We received a relevant note from all countries today, stating that they do not object to presentation of our application," the official added.
The UN commission to decide on the Russian application for extension of continental shelf limits in the Arctic Ocean started working on July 11 in New York.
