Italy: France recalls ambassador over 'unfounded attacks' from Italy

The French Foreign Ministry has reportedly recalled its ambassador from Rome on Thursday, citing "unfounded attacks and outlandish claims" from Italian political leaders in a statement earlier in the day.
The move comes after Italian Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio met with leaders of the anti-Macron Yellow Vest movement in Paris on Tuesday. Di Maio himself posted a picture from the meeting on his Twitter account.
The latest incident is the latest in a series of political falling outs between both countries, ever since the Five Star Movement and the Lega Nord party formed a coalition to rule Italy.
