Danish foreign minister Per Stig Moller has reportedly spoken out in favour of a transatlantic free-trade zone binding the European Union and the US.

The foreign minister had reportedly said at a conference arranged by the Danish Export Council and Danish American Business Forum that despite recent high-profile schisms across the Atlantic on political issues, it was important to prevent the emergence of trade barriers.

"No one can deny that there have been some disagreements, but we must move forward, and this is an area in which we can stand together across the Atlantic. We must work to promote growth," Per Stig Moller was quoted as saying to the Danish news agency Ritzau.

The Danish proposal included regulations for free competition and public purchases and investments, reported the online edition of Danish newspaper The Copenhagen Post.
