Weekly Reader News - Senior;9/7/2007, Vol. 86 Issue 1, p3
The article focuses on opposition against the move by Russian explorers of placing their country's flag on the seabed below the North Pole. Officials from some countries claim that North Pole is not part of any country and that Russia does not have a right to claim it. However, Russian officials argue that the Arctic seabed and their country's territory have the same continental shelf.
