Denmark’s PM set to visit Faroe Islands next month

Denmark’s newly appointed prime minister Mette Frederiksen will visit the Faroe Islands next month.

According to local news outlets, Faroe Islands prime minister (løgmaður) Bárður á Steig Nielsen and his Danish counterpart Mette Frederiksen have agreed to meet in the Faroe Islands in November. 

Earlier this week, the two prime ministers met in the Ministry of the State of Denmark, where they discussed issues related to the ongoing cooperation between the two nations.

“We have agreed to work purposefully on strengthening the Union (between Denmark, the Faroe Islands and Greenland). It is necessary to give an account of the great advantages of having a strong Union,” said Bárður á Steig Nielsen.

Mr. Nielsen represents The Unionist Party, which came to power in the Faroe Islands last month.
