Clinton Tours the Arctic

TROMSO, Norway — U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton boarded a research ship Saturday for a tour of the Arctic to illustrate U.S. interests in the region.

"We want to work with Norway and the Arctic Council to … agree on what would be, in effect, the rules of the road in the Arctic, so new developments are economically sustainable and environmentally responsible," she said Friday.

The Arctic Council is an advisory body made up of the Arctic coastal states — Canada, Denmark, which handles foreign affairs for Greenland, Norway, Russia and the United States — along with Finland, Iceland and Sweden.
