US President Donald Trump has been told by the government of Greenland that the island is not for sale.

Greenland responded to reports Trump had spoken to aides about purchasing the territory from Denmark.

In a statement on the island government’s website, a spokesman said: “We have a good cooperation with USA, and we see it as an expression of greater interest in investing in our country and the possibilities we offer.

“Of course, Greenland is not for sale.”

The story was originally reported by the Wall Street Journal, and it was met with mixed reactions on whether it was a joke or a serious proposal.
