Tensions in the region arise from two sources: squabbles among the border states -- Norway, Russia, the U.S., Canada, Denmark (representing Greenland), Finland, Iceland, and Sweden -- over who owns what, and efforts by non-polar countries-- China, India, the European Union and Japan -- that want access. The conflicts range from serious to somewhat silly.
