AFP: Macron 'never meant to offend' Italy with migrant comments14 June 2018 | 11:42 | FOCUS News Agency
In a phone call with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte on Wednesday evening, "the president stressed that none of his comments were intended to offend Italy and the Italian people," Macron's office said in a statement.
A lunch meeting between the two leaders in Paris on Friday, which Rome had threatened to cancel after Macron accused Italy of "cynicism and irresponsibility" in its response to the stranded Aquarius migrant ship, will go ahead as planned, the statement added.
