Following talks with Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen, May is set to travel to neighbouring Sweden for talks with Prime Minister Stefan Lofven on the same topics.

Denmark and Sweden are among over a dozen European countries that have sided with May's government in maintaining that Russia was behind the attack.
