The United States opposed "control" of Russia over Sevmorput
According to him, the Arctic and the Northern sea route should be fully used by all countries of the Arctic Council, and this region has no right to claim nobody.

"Russia considers the Arctic its territory. But in fact it is international territory, and we are interested in the fact that it is free and open to all," said Foggo. However, he added that us companies are not interested in using the Northern sea route, because its depth is too shallow for ships of the United States.

In addition, Foggo said that China is not a member of the Arctic Council, and therefore, according to the Admiral, not eligible for use in Arctic waters.
