Tensions increased between Paris and Rome this Tuesday as Italy showed support for the yellow vest movement.

Luigi Di Maio, Deputy Premier and Labour and Industry Minister said “Macron compared our government to leprosy!” in response to being told to “butt out” by the Minister of French European Affairs, Nathalie Loiseau.

Both Di Maio and Matteo Salvini, have given their backing to the yellow vest movement with Di Maio saying his 5-Star Movement (M5S) was ‘ready to provide support to the Yellow Vests’, and later responding to Loiseau “Maybe she is forgetting that her president, (Emmanuel) Macron), compared us to leprosy when talking about our government.”

Loiseau responded by saying the French government would raise the issue with Italian Foreign Minister Enzo Moavero Milanesi.

“We speak often, about many things, we’ll talk about this too. The priority of every government is to take care of the well-being of its citizens, so I think that the well-being of the Italian people is the priority of the Italian government. I don’t think dealing with the yellow vests has anything to do with the well-being of the Italian people”.
