I wish to share a link to a specific message in Teams chat ... however only options are
Save this message
Mark as unread
Share to Outlook
the ability to copy a link to a chat message is extremely handy ... its available on say Slack why not on Teams ? or perhaps its a config setting disabled at my work ?

That would be nice.
But - now one year later - I've got the same problem even within a channel. But the problem does not exist in all channels. In some channels I've got the "copy link" ("Link kopieren" in german) and at least in one, I only have the share via Outlook option /"Mit Outlook teilen").
Does anyone know why?

We have the exact same need. We often take a chat, rename it and make it a standing conversation, and need to send the link out to someone. I am pretty shocked to hear that we can't do this
MS should get on this simple addition!

Please Microsoft, do something with this... We was forced to migrate from Slack to MS Teams and everyday I get frustrated when I need to share a link from a message in a "Private Chat" to my mates.
It's better to don't talk about the Linux "Preview" client app and other topics. From my point of view Slack is really better in all senses, but definetively this topic about sharing the link to private chat messages is the worst issue and the one that drives me to frustration.

I will add my voice in support of this need.
I frequently need to capture the link to a specific message in a chat as context for an action that I need to take, or as a reference for a project I am working on. I have as many as 200 projects (using the GTD definition of "project" as "an outcome requiring more than one action to realize") in flight at any given time, and conversations coming at me from every direction - some relevant, many not, some invited, many ad hoc, etc.
Three days from now, I will have an inkling that someone gave me pertinent info about a project (and likely also attached a file or included a table, etc.), I just won't remember exactly when it happened, and whether the person did so as part of one chat group or another, or if it was a direct message just to me.
What's odd is that I can get the URL for a private chat message through an integrated App. I have the Todoist integration added, and I can make a Todoist task out of a chat message. The integrated App adds the task to Todoist with the URL to the chat.
I can also do the same thing to OneNote with the OneNote integrated App in Teams.
I usually just do that, and then go to Todoist or OneNote to get the URL so I can copy it into my project references, but then have to clean up by deleting the task or the OneNote note.
If I can get the URL through one of those means, why can I not just copy it to the clipboard from Teams? It's clearly useful, and clearly possible...

You can also use the Share with Outlook feature. It will open another window, click Edit Link and copy the first part, without the references to outlook. It's weird that you can't share a link in Teams but can share it in Outlook or other apps. It's the same link and a real pain.
To help protect privacy, there could be a share link privacy popup like in SharePoint or Teams file sharing.
