COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Denmark's foreign minister Kristian Jensen hopes to reach a deal with the European Commission within weeks that allows the country to remain within the European Union's cross-border police organisation Europol, he said on Twitter.

Danish broadcaster TV2 earlier reported that Jensen expected to close the deal within two weeks. He said on Twitter that he only "hoped" to close the deal within "some weeks".

Danes last December rejected a government proposal for new laws needed to keep the country inside the European police agency.
