French Foreign Minister in Italy to activate the détente between Paris and Rome

NNA - French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna visited Rome today to hold talks with her Italian counterpart, Antonio Tajani, with the aim of activating the détente between the two countries after differences over immigration, according to "Agence France-Presse".

Colonna will meet Italy's foreign minister, deputy prime minister and second-in-command of the right-wing "Forza Italia" party, junior partner in the ultra-conservative coalition led by Giorgia Meloni.

Ahead of her visit, Colonna, who served as ambassador to Rome from 2014 to 2017, said France was "definitely" not facing a crisis with neighboring Italy.

However, sharp reactions were issued on the peninsula to statements made by French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanan, who said on May 4 that Meloni was "incapable of solving the immigration problems on which she was elected."
