WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Volkswagen's <VOWG_p.DE> chief executive said on Tuesday after a meeting at the White House that the German automaker was building an alliance with Ford Motor Co <F.N> and that they might use the U.S. automaker's plants to build cars.

VW CEO Herbert Diess said the company was also "considering building a second car plant," adding, "We are in quite advanced negotiations and dialog with Ford Corporation to really build up a global automotive alliance, which also would strengthen the American automotive industry."
