Martin Lidegaard, Danish Foreign Minister has replied back to Vanin’s remarks saying that such comments are “unacceptable” and both the countries should try and maintain a positive dialogue. The ambassador’s comments came after the Danish military posted details about their encroachments or near-encroachments of Denmark’s airspace.
