“Of course I will mention that to the president.”
The Danish prime minister will attend a meeting of Nordic leaders with President Obama on Wednesday evening.
Sweden’s Foreign Minister Carl Bildt recently said Sweden had no plans to raise the issue.
Thorning-Schmidt said she would also offer Danish support for planned US military action in Syria, according to news agency Ritzau.
“We will let the Americans know they have a very close ally they can count on,” she said.
President Obama is expected to land in Stockholm by 10:30 am on Wednesday morning and will meet with Swedish Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt before going on to visit Stockholm’s synagogue and the Royal Institute of Technology. A press conference is planned for 2:30 pm.
Reinfeldt told news agency TT that the most controversial issue for discussion would be negotiations over a planned EU-US free trade agreement. He ruled out raising the question of Gauntanamo Bay prison which he said he had already raised with the US.
