Premier says economic crisis partially resolved (see related) (ANSA) - Rome, February 6 - Italian Premier Enrico Letta said Thursday that the economic crisis has been partially overcome, and what remains to be tackled is a social crisis that followed.

"The tiredness and social uneasiness are still there. It is an extremely heavy social crisis," Letta said in a speech to the center-left Democratic Party (PD) at a meeting in Rome. "We have a great opportunity in 2014, that of pulling out of the social crisis this year". This could be done by addressing rising intolerance towards politicians and institutions, Letta added.
