Don't take lessons from Macron - Salvini

He locked borders, turned back women and children-deputy premier

(ANSA) - Rome, September 26 - Interior Minister and Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini on Wednesday hit back at French President Emmanuel Macron for saying that there was a "political crisis" between Italy and the rest of the EU over migration. "We don't take lesson on law and humanity from Signor Macron," said Salvini, the leader of the rightwing League party.
    "In recent months he locked the border with Italy and turned back over 50,000 migrants, above all women and children".
    On Tuesday Italian Premier Giuseppe Conte said that Macron "only represents France, while Europe is composed of 27 countries".
