Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs Søvndal gave the following remarks during the visit:
"I am very pleased with Clinton's visit to Copenhagen which stressed the government's good and constructive relationship with the Obama Administration.
I used the meeting with Clinton to call for a U.S. commitment to the Rio+20 Conference, held in Brazil in June. At the conference, the Government will focus on achieving results to promote global transition to a green economy. And I did emphasize the value of greater American leadership in this regard.
During my meeting with Clinton, I stressed that the Government's new security policy and stabilization efforts in fragile states, including Afghanistan, has high priority. It will be a key area in our future foreign policy cooperation with the U.S.
Specifically, we agreed on two new collaborative projects that are very well aligned with Denmark's new foreign policy priorities.
Firstly, we agreed to establish a new Danish-American partnership on the prevention of terror in East Africa. Here the focus will particularly be on countering the financing of terrorism.
Secondly, we agreed on a joint project aimed at training police officers in countering terrorism in accordance with international human rights standards.
Finally, I had opportunity to discuss the Arab Spring and the importance of strong cooperation on Arctic issues with Clinton. Both are issues which are an important part of our foreign policy dialogue with the United States."
