Antarctic Inspections on Swedish Initiative

Published onsdag 10 januari 2007 kl 10.50
The American Amundsen-Scott South Pole station will be inspected

A number of research stations in the Antarctic are about to be inspected, as part of a Swedish initiative.

In a press release, the Swedish Foreign Ministry says this will be the first inspection of scientific bases at the South Pole in 13 years. Two Swedes will be taking part, along with representatives from France, Italy and New Zealand.

Under the environmental provisions of the Antarctic Treaty of 1959, each signatory state is entitled to inspect other countries’ research stations.        

The initiative comes after Sweden hosted an international conference on Antarctica in Stockholm in 2005.
