Auch der Vorschlag, dass sich Kanada und Dänemark die kleine Insel teilen, soll diskutiert werden. Eine weitere Möglichkeit besteht darin, die Verantwortung über die Insel den in Grönland ansässigen Inuit zu übertragen — oder Hans Island in einen Naturpark zu verwandeln.
Eine Einigung in dieser Angelegenheit könnte laut einem Experten bis zehn Jahre dauern. However, since the early s, this nondescript rock has been at the center of an ongoing disagreement between Canada and Denmark.
Due to international law, all countries have the right to claim territory within 12 miles of their shore. However, as the League of Nations fell apart in the s and was then replaced by the United Nations, the ruling on the status of Hans Island carries little to no weight.
The dispute over Hans Island is genuine, having soured Danish-Canadian relations for decades and remains unresolved to this day.
This war of words and whiskey — more on that later over control of a tiny portion of the vast High Arctic, remains a key point in bilateral relations.
With Danish control over Greenland established in , Denmark has long had a significant presence in the High Arctic region. Following the purchase of Alaska by the United States, and the formation of Canada in , British and American interest in the area increased.
Anglo-American efforts to explore and chart the region often relied on Inuit and Danish peoples in Greenland. Canadian-based Dome Petroleum Ltd.
In , a team consisting of personnel from the Canadian Hydrographic Service and Danish personnel working in the Nares Strait determined the geographic coordinates for Hans Island.
During negotiations between Canada and Denmark on their maritime boundary in , both states claimed Hans Island was part of their territory.
No agreement was reached between the two governments on the issue. The maritime boundary immediately north and south of Hans Island was established in the continental shelf treaty ratified by Greenland and Canada and then submitted to the United Nations on December 17, , in force since March 13, The treaty lists points latitude and longitude from the Davis Strait to the end of the Robeson Channel , where the Nares Strait runs into the Lincoln Sea , to draw geodesic lines between, to form the border.
In Kenn Harper , a historian from Iqaluit , wrote an article about Hans Island which was published in the local newspaper Nunatsiaq News in Qaanaaq Thule in northwestern Greenland.
This article was sparked because of a chance encounter on the ice near Resolute , in the Canadian Arctic in the autumn of Dome Petroleum did research on and around the island from to Simultaneously, the Danish and Canadian governments were in the process of signing a cooperation agreement in relation to the marine environment in the Nares Strait.
The agreement was signed and put into force on August 26, One of the items also discussed was the possibility of establishing a reciprocal arrangement for processing applications to conduct research on and around Hans Island.
However, unknown to the politicians, Dome Petroleum was doing research on the island. It's commonly told, internally in the Danish Navy, that it was specifically a bottle of Gammel Dansk , which translates literally to 'Old Danish'.
The Canadians have reciprocated with their own sign, the flag of Canada and a bottle of Canadian Club. Though CBC and others had done some reporting in the s,  the dispute came to popular attention through Canadian press stories during late March Within days, it spread to other newspapers worldwide.
On March 25, , when Adrian Humphreys of the Canadian National Post newspaper wrote an article entitled "Five-year plan to 'put footprints in the snow' and assert northern sovereignty", Humphreys made a brief mention of the dispute over Hans Island, and that the Danes had sent warships to the island.
The Arctic sea region has long been a subject of the dispute. In this matter, Canada, Denmark, Iceland , Russia , and Norway share a common interest because they regard parts of the Arctic seas as "national waters".
The United States and most European Union countries, on the other hand, officially regard the region as international waters.
A long-standing dispute over what is essentially a large rock between Nunavut and Greenland may soon find its end after representatives from Denmark and Canada announced on Wednesday that they would begin looking into ways to resolve their outstanding border issues in the Arctic.
While determining the location of most of the border was a simple matter of identifying a center line, agreeing to the status of Tartupaluk has proved more difficult, given its position in middle of the Kennedy Channel, part of a system of waterways linking Baffin Bay to the Arctic Ocean.
That has led both countries to steadfastly lay claim to the acre 1. It also comes after Danish and Canadian academics, in , called for the island to be shared equally between the two countries, with the border drawn down the middle, connecting the borders that exist on either end.
