Who should own the Arctic?
Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has rejected talk of an impending battle for control of the Arctic region's mineral resources. How should resources be shared?
It is thought that under the Arctic Ocean lies 25% of the world's resources of oil and gas. The scramble for resources has been set in motion partly by improved access caused by the melting of polar ice.
Russia, Norway, Canada, Denmark and the US have all laid claims to territory in the region. They have met in Moscow this week in an attempt to head off an international dispute.
Can the meeting prevent potential conflict over valuable resources? Are you attending the meeting? Are you based in the Arctic region?
