Greenland takes another step toward independence

Final results of yesterday’s referendum in Greenland show that 75.54 per cent of voters voted for home rule and greater autonomy, whereas 23.57 per cent voted against. This result paves the way for Greenland’s eventual independence from Denmark and reaffirms its sovereign rights to manage its own natural resources. Home rule will come into force on 21 June 2009.
