Former South Africa president a 'lesson' for Europe10 December, 11:27
The Italian premier is among over 90 international leaders, including United States President Barack Obama, taking part in a commemoration service for Mandela in Johannesburg, who died aged 95 last week. Letta added that Mandela's philosophy was a lesson to Europe.
"Coming here you realise that either Europe unites or it doesn't count for anything," Letta said.
"That's the impression that I send home to Europe from here. It's an impression that we must reflect on".
