U.S., Italian leaders reaffirm "enduring" bonds

WASHINGTON, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- U.S. President Barack Obama and Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta reaffirmed the "enduring" bonds that link the two allies, the White House said on Friday.

In a telephone talk between the two leaders, Obama expressed his personal gratitude to Letta for "his leadership and friendship," said a statement issued by the White House.

"The two reaffirmed the enduring bonds that will continue to link the United States and Italy, long-standing friends and allies," added the statement.

Letta announced his resignation on Thursday after his own Democratic Party backed a motion calling for a new government to implement reforms more swiftly and better tackle the economic crisis.

He submitted his resignation to President Guirgio Napolitano Friday, who later began consultations to form a new government.
