Greenland PM Kim Kielsen loses majority as pro-independence party quits coalition
COPENHAGEN, Sept 10 (Reuters) - Greenland's Prime Minister Kim Kielsen was working on Monday to form a new coalition after a pro-independence party pulled out, leaving his government without a parliamentary majority.
Kielsen's coalition's was formed in May, and Partii Naleraq's departure leaves it with 12 of 31 seats in parliament.
Greenland is a self-ruling part of the Kingdom of Denmark, and while its government decides on most domestic matters, foreign and security policy is handled by Copenhagen.
The Danish government has been concerned that Chinese involvement in the project, as suggested by Greenland, could upset its close ally, the United States.
