Faroe-US cooperative deal signed soon
A proposal for a Faroe-United States cooperative agreement is now ready.
Later today, Faroese foreign minister Jenis av Rana will consult the Parliamentary Foreign Affairs Committee on a joint declaration between the two nations.
The initiative for the new agreement is Faroese, and Mr av Rana brought it up with the US ambassador to Denmark, Carla Sands, when she visited the Faroes in June.

Sands approved of the initiative, as did US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo when he met with Mr av Rana in Copenhagen a few weeks later.
The proposed agreement covers “a wide variety of political issues”, as Mr av Rana puts it.
According to the Faroese government, a US representative will travel to the Faroes on 12 November to sign the agreement.
The Faroese constitution requires the government to consult with the Parliamentary Foreign Affairs Committee on major decisions regarding foreign affairs.
