 Rasmussen: March 2001, Pugwash Occasional Papers
This Committee, along with the Inuit Circumpolar Conference (an NGO representing some 152,000 Inuit living in Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and Siberia) are the two main bodies by which foreign and defense policy issues are brought to the fore for public discussion in Greenland.
Since then, the only official statement to come from the Greenland Government was a joint communique in November 1999 of the main coalition parties,4 the Siumut and Inuit Ataqatigiit (IA), noting their opposition should NMD either contravene the ABM Treaty or be implemented unilaterally by the Americans.
Especially sensitive to the Inuit are memories of the crash in 1968, some seven miles from Thule, of a B-52G bomber carrying four nuclear weapons.

But Siumut's old coalition partner, the liberal Atassut, was replaced by the Inuit Ataqatigiit party.

However, the new government plans to form a committee examining Greenland's relationship to Denmark and to ensure what Inuit Ataqatigiit leader Josef Motzfeldt called ``Greenland's equal and free position in the union with Denmark.''
