    The temperature steadily rising on the planet, Arctic region is no more seen as just an inaccessible mass of ice. Many countries are presently claiming their share of the region rich in resources and having bright perspectives. The EU has also joined the race http://cyberlegion.org/europes-share-of-the-arctic-pie/#more-144

    With nearly 90% of freight into and out of the EU comes through maritime transport. The Northern Sea Route would be of utmost importance: the journey from Rotterdam to South Korea through this way saves 10 days!

    No wonder passions are heightening over Arctic. There's real threat of Arctic military race lead to a 21st century cold war. Amid this background the EU must resist the temptation of rewriting or just ignoring some of already reached agreements regulating exploration of the region by coastal Arctic states. It's really a must now to escape big war!
    What's India's agenda for Arctic region, I wonder?
