French National Assembly, debate on and ratification of the revision to the treaties concerning Greenland, second sitting, 21 November 1984

On 21 November 1984, the French National Assembly debates the bill for ratification of the amendment to the Community treaties that grants Greenland ‘overseas country and territory’ status. Right-wing MPs regret the loss of a territory that represents 60 % of the entire surface area of the Communities. It calls on the government to re-open negotiations on the protocol establishing future relations between Greenland and the Communities so as to guarantee Community and Member State access to the future strategic resources of this territory. The socialists approve the bill, invoking the right of peoples to self-determination.
