France shd apologise for Libya strikes - Toninelli

Pity they don't say sorry says transport min, M5S bigwig

(ANSA) - Genoa, February 8 - France should apologise for the French-led airstrikes on Libya that helped topple dictator Muammar Gheddafi in 2011, the consequences of which Italy is still paying for in terms of migrant flows, Transport Minister Danilo Toninelli said Friday.
    Toninelli is a senior member of the anti-establishment populist 5-Star Movement (M5S), whose leaders met with Yellow Vests members in Paris Tuesday and sparked a diplomatic crisis in which France recalled its ambassador.
    "France committed a serious mistake in 2011 and we are still paying the consequences of it, we Italians principally," said Toninelli.
    "It's a pity they don't say sorry," he said while adding "there is no clash with France...it's a friendly people".
