France recalls its ambassador to Italy over 'repeated, baseless verbal attacks'

The regime is firing on the people 9,228 bean-bag bullets since 13 November 2018

Emmanuel Macron has abruptly canceled his trip to the Munich Security Conference, with the Élysée saying he is focused on domestic issues amidst the ongoing Yellow Vest protests - but German media is seeing Russian Federation in all this. Neither leader likes the pro-European Emmanuel Macron.

Italian deputy PM said France "never stopped colonising tens of African states".

France's government spokesman said the recall of its ambassador to Italy is temporary, but sends an important signal to its historical ally not to meddle in internal French affairs.

The French foreign ministry said it was an "unacceptable provocation", and recalled Christian Masset back to Paris "for consultations".

"For several months, France has been the subject of repeated accusations, unfounded attacks and outlandish claims", the ministry said in a statement, calling the situation "unprecedented".

But the main trigger for the crisis appeared to be Di Maio's meeting in a Paris suburb this week with members of the yellow vest movement seeking seats in the European Parliament.

This week Di Maio met leaders of the gilets jaunes and said: "The wind of change has crossed the Alps".

Di Maio, the head of a party that likewise began on social media and that grew into a real political faction, has been encouraging the yellow vests from the beginning.

In a statement, the French foreign ministry also accused di Maio of electioneering at the expense of France.

It added: "Having disagreements is one thing but manipulating the relationship for electoral aims is another".

"There was behavior by a member of the Italian government that we consider unusual, unfriendly and that follows a number of official Italian statements that we find hard to understand in terms of how they help Franco-Italian relations", she told France Info.

During a visit to Egypt last month, Macron sought to shrug off the sparring, dismissing Salvini and Di Maio's comments as "insignificant" and adding that he dealt only with Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte.

The insults of Macron do not affect me, they make me strong.

"Mr Di Maio, who holds government responsibilities, must take care not to undermine, through his repeated interferences, our bilateral relations, in the interest of both France and Italy", he said.

The "yellow vests" rallies, triggered by fuel price hikes last November, are still ongoing, with nearly 60,000 reportedly participating in mass protests in France during the first weekend of February.
