France calls for sanctions as Italy defiant on stranded migrant ship

France calls for sanctions as Italy defiant on stranded migrant shipEU states that refuse to accept migrants should face financial penalities, French President Emmanuel Macron said Saturday on the eve of an emergency mini-summit in Brussels about the escalating crisis dividing Europe. It came after Italy’s new populist government defiantly declared that its ports were closed to foreign-flagged rescue ships, after accusing fellow EU members of failing to share the burden of migrant arrivals. Macron, speaking after talks in Paris with Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, said member states that benefit from EU cooperation but “claim national self-interest when it comes to the issue of migrants” should have sanctions imposed on them.
