Postcards from Greenland

An iceberg floats in a fjord near Tasiilaq. Greenland is strategically important for the U.S. military and its ballistic missile early-warning system since the shortest route from Europe to North America runs via the Arctic island. The United States maintains an air base in Thule in Greenland's northwest under a 1951 treaty with Denmark. Pictures taken June 2018.      REUTERS/Lucas Jackson

Snow covered mountains rise above the harbour and town of Tasiilaq. Greenland lacks basic infrastructure for its tiny population of 56,000. There are no roads between the country's 17 towns and only one commercial international airport, forcing people to travel by sea or air.

A young boy plays on a trampoline in the town of Tasiilaq. Since 2009 Greenland has held the right to declare independence from Denmark. If Greenland do so, it could choose to become associated with the United States. But few Greenlanders see independence as viable given their economic dependence on Denmark, part of the affluent European Union.  REUTERS/Lucas Jackson

Glaciers wind their way through mountains on the way to the coast above eastern Greenland. Washington wants a greater military presence in Greenland to better defend its Thule Air Base and enhance surveillance of the waters between the island and the European continent.
 The Thule base mainly operates a missile warning system as well as space and satellite surveillance.

A general view of Thule Air Base. The U.S. military stationed personnel at some 50 bases in Greenland during the Cold War, but a renegotiation of their presence with Denmark in 2004 whittled it down to the Thule Air Base only. A few hundred U.S. personnel are stationed at Thule, compared with almost 10,000 during the Cold War.
