SANTIAGO (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Monday more can be done to expand economic cooperation with Chile, the world’s top copper producer.

Obama was in Chile for the second leg of a regional trip overshadowed by air strikes by U.S. and allied countries to contain Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, to lay out his vision for deeper ties with Latin America.
