Russian President Vladimir Putin has told his military leadership they should build up their forces in the Arctic as a priority.

Commending the recent restoration of an airfield in the region, he said Russia needed to use every means to protect its national interests in the region.

He was speaking after Canada announced plans to claim the continental shelf under the North Pole.

Russia and Denmark also lay claim to parts of the resource-rich shelf.
