Salvini says ready for talks with Macron

Deputy premier says he's not interested in controversy

(ANSA) - Pianella, February 7 - Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Thursday that he was ready to have talks with French President Emmanuel Macron after Paris recalled its ambassador to Rome for consultations. "We don't want to row with anyone and we are not interested in controversies," League leader Salvini said. "We are practical people and we defend the interests of the Italian people. "Extremely willing to meet President Macron and the French government, sit around around and discuss three fundamental issues - no more pushbacks (of migrants at the Italian-French border), no more Italian terrorists (living freely) in France and no more harm to our commuters, who are hit every day with French border checks that last hours".
