Denmark in May 2008 called a summit of the five Arctic powers in Ilulissat, Greenland
, to try to restrain competition and reiterate the countries' joint commitment to the UN Law of the Sea Convention which governs territorial waters.

, where the first meeting was held, on 28 May 2008.

In order to preserve the decisive say in the Arctic matters (practically an intention of keeping it as the "inner lake" of 5 acceding states), the Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs and the Premier of Greenland invited in May 2008 representatives of the Five Arctic States to Ilulissat, Greenland
to discuss the political currents of the Arctic.
