Greenland is not for sale, the Foreign Minister said after reports that US President Donald Trump is considering buying the island. Greenland is open to do business with the Americans.

Greenland, an autonomous area within the Kingdom of Denmark, has reportedly aroused Trump's interest because it is rich in uranium and other rare earth metals. The largest island in the world has also been seen as interesting geopolitical.

Trump travels to the Danish capital Copenhagen in September. Among other things, the Arctic will be discussed.

"We are open to doing business, but are not for sale," said the Greenland Foreign Minister.

Danish politics react with a laugh but also angered at the idea. "A total catastrophe", the former American ambassador, Rufus Gifford, calls it Denmark.

Former Danish Foreign Minister, Martin Lidegaard, calls it a "grotesque proposal": "We're talking about people here. You can't just sell Greenland as an old-fashioned colonial power."
