    The European Union and the United States have agreed to talks on a free trade alliance.

    European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso says they should be able to start discussions by the end of June on bringing down trading barriers.

    It would be the most ambitious free trade deal ever attempted, covering half the world's economic output and a third of global trade flows.
