Pope says countries must unite on migration, as Italy, France clash

"This country can not accept hypocritical lessons from countries that have long preferred to turn their heads away on the immigration issue", Conte said.

The Paris talks sealed peace after friction over the Aquarius migrant ship. The second, a part of parliamentary group of its own party, Republic in progress, and own Europeanism that cultivates Macron: its will to incarnate in adversary at same time liberal and progressive to national-populist Europe embodied by Salvini and Le Pen. Incidentally, some media wrote that the Makron finally called on Thursday, June 13, the Prime Minister of Italy, Giuseppe Conte, however, it is unknown what he was talking about officials.

The French president, Emmanuel Macron, wants to make French grand again and replace English as the default language in European Union institutions, the way it was before Britain joined the bloc in 1973.

"But now we need to work on reform of the Dublin Agreement", he added in reference to controversial European Union rules which require migrants to apply for asylum in the country where they first arrive. "He who puts his feet in Italy puts his feet in Europe", said Conte, who was a law professor before he became premier.

The migrants who were rescued last Saturday remained at sea on Friday.

French President Emmanuel Macron says Europe's response to mass migration has not adapted to the times and insists reform is needed.

"I think we've never been so central and so heard as we have been over the last hours", Salvini told the senators, adding that sympathetic officials from Germany and elsewhere had contacted him to applaud his position.

The meeting between Macron and Conte at the Elysee Palace in Paris nearly did not take place after the president offered a harsh assessment of Italy's refusal to accept a private rescue ship carrying 629 migrants.

The spat between France and Italy erupted this week after Macron accused Rome of "cynicism and irresponsibility" for refusing to let the Aquarius dock. Rome says only migrants rescued by Italian ships can be brought to Italian ports.

Earlier in the day, the Italian Foreign Ministry said it had summoned the French ambassador to complain that the French comments about the Aquarius were "unacceptable".

Italy's new Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte will meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on Monday, a statement said on Thursday. They will then hold a joint news conference.

A feud was triggered this week by Macron's tough assessment of Italy's decision to shut its ports to a rescue ship carrying 629 migrants - he called the Italian government's behaviour "irresponsible".

Under the EU's asylum laws - now the subject of revision amid a major political dispute - migrants must apply for asylum in the country where they first enter Europe.

"This is quickly becoming the main issue between these two countries", Christian Blasberg, a professor of contemporary history at Rome's LUISS University, said in an interview.
