Attending different meetings in Washington, the two members of the Standing Committee found time to meet and discuss Arctic issues.

Senator Torlopov, Chair of the Russian delegation to the Arctic parliamentary cooperation, and Ms Sara Olsvig, Chair of the Standing Committee, met in Washington this week to exchange information and discuss future Arctic cooperation.

Among the topics in the discussion were cooperation in culture and possible future fisheries in the Arctic Ocean. The two agreed that cultural cooperation should be lifted on the Arctic agenda. They also underlined the need for better information about possible new patterns in Arctic fisheries as the sea water temperature is rising in the Arctic Ocean.
