Italy minister urges France to receive more migrants


ROME – Italy’s far-right interior minister Matteo Salvini on Wednesday accused France of failing to fulfill its commitments on receiving migrants, urging it to show “generosity” and take in more.

In a speech to the senate, Salvini said that France had only taken in 640 of the more than 9,000 migrants it had promised to take from Italy.

He demanded that France move from “words to action and offer a sign of generosity” by taking more in.
