Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar traveled to Nuuk, Greenland on May 12th to co-lead the U.S. delegation to the Arctic Council Ministerial. Deputy Secretary Steinberg joined us to preview the ministerial meeting and provide an update on the Obama administration's Arctic policy objectives. Immediately following, Admiral Thad Allen offered his comments and reflections on U.S. Arctic policy.
This event is the culmination of a four month collaborative initiative of the World Wildlife Fund and CSIS to examine key issues and policy recommendations in the lead-up to the Nuuk Ministerial.
