Status: Antarctic territorial claims
Under the Antarctic Treaty (1959), the territorial claims of the signatory nations are frozen as long as the treaty remains in force. Norway is a signatory nation to the treaty.
The Norwegian claim for Queen Maud Land (Dronning Maud Land) consists of Antarctica between 20° W and 45° E. The territory consists of 2.5 million km2 claimed by Norway on 14 January 1939.
