COPENHAGEN, Aug. 31 (Xinhua) -- The leaders of Denmark, Greenland and the Faeroe Islands on Thursday agreed to strengthen cooperation on foreign and domestic affairs following high-level talks in Igaliku, southern Greenland.

Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt is on an official visit to Greenland where she met with Greenland's Prime Minister Kuupik Kleist, and Prime Minister Kaj Leo Holm Johannesen of the Faeroe Islands.

Greenland and the Faeroe Islands, which lie in the Arctic Circle and High Atlantic respectively, are both self-governing territories of Denmark.

The call for closer cooperation was made at a press conference late Thursday after the high-level talks between three leaders.

"There is no doubt the commonwealth (of Demark, Greenland and Faeroe Islands) matters to all of us. One of the concrete measures emerging from our meeting is that the Danish government has taken the initiative to strengthen cooperation on both external and domestic affairs policies," said Thorning-Schmidt.

"We will strengthen our liaison, strengthen mutual information exchange, and strengthen our cooperation overall," she added, in comments cited by Greenland news website Sermitsiaq.ag.
