Any country has the right to work in the Arctic, but the work necessary to build, President Vladimir Putin said at the plenary session of the International Arctic Forum.
"Moreover, all the work and in the region (the Arctic - Take a look.)", - Putin said, RIA "Novosti".
According to him, currently "the only question is how we can build this work, how to negotiate."
Recall, the international legal status of the Arctic area has long been a subject of controversy, primarily between the US, Canada, Russia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland.
Last year, Russia introduced a UN subcommittee on the continental shelf of the legal basis for expanding the boundaries of the Russian shelf in the Arctic.
