Nato commander warns of conflict with Russia in Arctic Circle

Competition for resources in the Arctic Circle could provoke conflict between Russia and Nato, a newly appointed commander at the alliance warned yesterday.

Russia has recently been aggressive in its pursuit of claims to parts of the region and in February sent a submarine to the floor of the sea symbolically to plant a Russian flag. Admiral James Stavridis said that military activity and trade routes would also be potential sources of competition around the polar cap.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Cooperation and trade trumps military confrontation every time.

NATO's inviting Russia to become a full NATO member would be a very logical thing to do, and would mean that the world would, perhaps, be just a little more secure if that were to happen.
