Denmark's prime minister said on Wednesday that U.S. President Donald Trump's cancellation of a state visit after Denmark rebuffed his interest in purchasing Greenland would not affect close relations between the two allies.

Danish PM says cancellation of Trump visit won't hurt good U.S. relations

Trump's proposal at first elicited incredulity and humour from politicians in Denmark, a NATO ally of the United States, with former premier Lars Lokke Rasmussen saying: "It must be an April Fool's Day joke." "The cancellation of the visit doesn't change the good relationship between Denmark and the United States," Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen said at a press briefing.

She also reaffirmed that Greenland is not for sale.

Trump, whose "America First" policies have resulted in strained relations with the EU over trade and other issues, said on Sunday (August 18) that a U.S. purchase of Greenland would be "a large real estate deal", though not an immediate priority.
