Neither Canada nor Denmark recognises any land border. They both just claim Hans Island completely, and a maritime border right beside its western shore (claimed by Denmark) or eastern shore (claimed by Canada).

Do you deny that Canada and Denmark are neighbours? There are no international waters between Danish Greenland and Canada, no matter the dispute of the small land border.

IIRC the Canada/Denmark border has a gap through Hans Island. They haven't decided on what to do with it.

No. I even said in my previous post that they both claim a maritime border.

But Greenland is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, so no Denmark as an autonomous country does not border Canada

Indeed, so let's say "Kingdom of Denmark" instead of Denmark.

There is no such thing as "Denmark as an autonomous country" within the kingdom of Denmark, so Junkie's remark again makes no sense. The European part of Denmark has no "home rule" within the Kingdom of Denmark. Greenland has homerule, but foreign policy, defense, and border control is under the authority of Denmark. Greenland is represented in the parliament of Denmark.

For most of its history Greenland was btw part of Norway, but that changed when Norway split from Denmark in 1814. The now extinct Norse population in South Greenland predated the current mainly Inuit population.

As far as I know Greenland is not even part of the European Single Market. They opted out on their OWN.

Greenland and the Faroe Islands are both part of the Kingdom of Denmark, while yet counting as stand alone countries. Afaik international and military policy is done by Denmark. But they have the right to break from the kingdom if they wish. For now the overall majority doesn't. But your remark has nothing to do with this.

The same goes for the Channel Islands and the Island of Man, while being part of the UK, not part of the EU (taking Brexit aside).

Oh yes Greenland withdraw from EU in 1985. Not many knows this fact. I think you are one of them. And they asked for greater independence from Denmark.

Algeria (independence from France in 1962), Greenland (autonomy from Denmark in 1985) and the Caribbean island Saint Barthélemy (changed status within France in 2012) are the only territories that have left EEC/EU yet.
