Franco-Italian rift: Conte, Macron row over stranded migrants
Date created :
Will the new Italian prime minister still be coming for lunch on Friday? Amid an escalation with France's president over the refusal to take in stranded migrants in the Mediterranean, Emmanuel Macron calls for "not giving in to emotion" and insists he's working with the government in Rome. This after the economy minister cancelled a meeting in Paris and the French ambassador to Italy was summoned over what the populists call "hypocritical lecturing" over the refusal to accept the Aquarius ship.
