Basta Cosi! France recalls ambassador as row with Italy escalates
Date created :
For the first time since Italy declared war on France in 1940, Paris has recalled its ambassador for consultations. The French denounce "outrageous statements" and unprecedented attacks. Migration, France's role in Libya and Africa, EU budgetary rules - the list is long. The last straw: Five Star leaders boasting online about meeting Yellow Vests in France. But is France overreacting? How far will the row go? What impact will this have on Europe when citizens vote for a new EU parliament in May?
