TASIILAQ, Greenland (AP) — Greenland said Friday it’s happy President Donald Trump has taken an interest in the nation, talking to aides and allies about buying the island for the U.S., but that it’s not for sale.

Following reports that Trump had spoken about the notion of buying Greenland, the semiautonomous Danish territory between the Atlantic and Arctic oceans issued a short statement to clarify it wasn’t on the market.

“We see it as an expression of greater interest in investing in our country and the possibilities we offer,” the government said. “Of course, Greenland is not for sale.”
