Letta and Kerry agree on EU-US free trade area

Rome, May 9 - Italian Premier Enrico Letta and US Secretary of State John Kerry agreed on Thursday on the need "to proceed rapidly to create a free trade area between the European Union and the United States" which they both consider "a driving force for growth" for the two continents, a source in the premier's office said after the two held talks in Rome. Kerry arrived in the Italian capital on Wednesday for his second visit since taking office. On Thursday Kerry met Letta, the leader of Italy's new left-right government, whom he has described as "a trusted friend of the US," and later Italian Foreign Minister Emma Bonino to discuss Syria and the Israeli-Palestinian peace process.
