Arctic should not turn into area of conflict of interests — Russia’s envoy to NATO

MOSCOW, December 26. /TASS/. Moscow is calling to prevent the Arctic from turning into a zone of a conflict of interests, although there are those who wish it was like that, Russia’s Ambassador to NATO Alexander Grushko said during a video conference on Friday.

“The Arctic should not become a place of a conflict of interests on the pattern of a Cold War, this cannot be allowed in any case,” Grushko said. “Although we know that there are certain forces that would like to make the Arctic a problem zone, too.”
