Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt has confirmed that emotions ran high at last week’s EU summit, during which the Financial Times has quoted the French president as telling Thorning-Schmidt to keep quiet.

“I will not repeat what was said in our closed meetings. That is not done,” Thorning-Schmidt tells Jyllands-Posten adding: “But when you sit there until five in the morning, you naturally don’t agree on everything”.

According to the Financial Times, Sarkozy reprimanded Thorning-Schmidt, saying that Denmark was outside the Eurozone, was a small country, that the Danish prime minister was new on the scene and that the assembly couldn’t be bothered to listen to her.

But according to Jyllands-Posten Thorning-Schmidt retorted: “No need to get so excited…” and continued maintaining the issue that had irritated Sarkozy – that it would be best to find a compromise so that all 27 EU countries, and not just 17 eurozone countries, could agree on treaty amendments.
