are in moscow to ensure cutthroat competition does not destroy conservation now let's get more from a cut that even over this covering the event alive for us now all the nations involved are unlikely to give an inch of territory with such rich and increasingly accessible resources now how are they working out who gets what. indeed the territorial claim seems to be the host issues surrounding one of the world's coldest region as you've just said the united states russia canada norway and denmark are now putting their claims trying to prove their rise to the among most a breach which is believed to contain as much as a quarter of the world's untapped undiscovered natural resources but the question is how these countries are going to get to that piece of a big cake and russia says it should be done through dialogue it actually demonstrated just recently that the power of dialogue when it signed an agreement with ona the arctic state with no way which put an end to

their goal is to provoke clashes among the arctic states and so that those who make the projections can fish for something in the murky waters but i am absolutely sure that all the existing problems including the ones over the continental shelf can be resolved in a manner of partnership and according to the. now one should understand why these dialogue about undiscovered untapped natural resources was raised in the first place climate change has led to the use the ice is shrinking and now access to natural resources is getting easier but the problem is the country's going to ensure that there would be another disaster similar to that which happened in the gulf of mexico because with its specific very delicate environment like in the arctic case even a small or even a small accident could lead to much more serious consequences now for more on these some not joined by one of the participants of the international oxic forum in moscow but it's still of what was also executive director of the northern forum

thank you very much for joining us ms my pleasure well turn onlooker who has been following what's the debates behind these doors it seems like the main dispute now is not about the ice itself not about the north pole but what's beneath the ice evolve these huge potentially huge amounts of untapped natural resources and. so what's the main priority in the whole to save the arctic or to get the most out of it. i think the priority is a combination of the two and we've heard several speakers over the last two days talk about the need to balance economic development natural resource extraction with protecting the environment and protecting the livelihoods of the people who live in the arctic but you know most forty seven forty a last reason certainly certainly is it likely that these quiet as a piece of cake dispute may suddenly boil up i don't i don't think so being an
