Paris –
President’s photo Emmanuel Macron who is approaching Georgia Meloni The Italian Prime Minister, who responded cordially at the beginning of the summit in Tirana, suggested overcoming the difficulties between France and Italy. Rather, there is still some way to go, both in substance and also in form, judging by the back-and-forth of yesterday between Eliseo and Palazzo Chigi.

If there is room for improvement in terms of form, even in terms of substance – immigration – the positions remain far away. In this regard, here is what the same source from the Elysee said yesterday: “Today, the specific issue of law enforcement has not been resolved, or rather the issue that divided us with the Italian authorities last month.
