COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Greenland Prime Minister Kim Kielsen presented a new minority government on Tuesday after losing his majority last month with the withdrawal of a pro-independence party.

Kielsen of the social democrat Siumut party told a press conference in the capital Nuuk that he had agreed with the liberal-conservative party Atassut and the separatist, centre-left party Nunatta Qitornai to form a minority government with the support of The Democrats, state broadcaster KNR reported.
