In addition to the National Front, the group also consists of Belgium's Vlaams Beland and Austrian Freedom Party.
"These are parties so far from the Danish People's Party that you can be when it comes to questions about Israel, Freedom and Democracy. And these parties have a lot of "dead wood" so we do not want anything to do with them," Messerschmidt tells Swedish Radio.
But the Sweden Democrats make a different choice. For many years the party tried to distance themselves from the National Front, among others after leading members expressed what could be interpreted as anti-semitic opinions, but now, the Sweden Democrats' international secretary, Kent Ekeroth, now says that with the change of party leader from Jean Marie le Pen to Marine le Pen, the party has changed its profile.
"In particular the fact that they have changed party leader. Marine Le Pen has taken many steps in the right direction and so you will have to re-evaluate such a party, which in many ways, in terms of criticising the EU and immigration, are close to us," Ekeroth tells Swedish Radio.
