"In my present position as a Minister of Justice, I have a number of responsibilities that relate to domestic and external security — the role of my ministry in this field could best be described by comparing it with your Department for Homeland Security. As maritime activity has immense importance for Iceland's security, I will address here today a number of security issues that relate to maritime activity in the North Atlantic. The profile of these maritime security issues is changing in the North Atlantic due to climate change and, in its wake, the increased exploitation of oil and gas in the Arctic."
