Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
A territorial dispute between Denmark and Canada over a barren and uninhabited rock in the Arctic that has led to decades of friendly friction has come to an end, with the two countries agreeing on Tuesday to divide the tiny island between them.

Under the agreement, a border will be drawn across the half-square-mile Hans Island in the waterway between the northwestern coast of the semi-autonomous Danish territory of Greenland and Canada's Ellesmere Island. The rock has no known mineral reserves of value.

"It sends a clear signal that it is possible to resolve border disputes ... in a pragmatic and peaceful way, where the all parties become winners," said Danish Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod. He said it was "an important signal now that there is much war and unrest in the world."

So does this mean that Denmark is suggesting that the Ukrainian war could be finished by dividing it in half (between Poland and Russia)? What else could he mean?
