Italy's Renzi: No Tension With France Over Illegal Migrants

Italy's prime minister and France's president put on a show of unity on Sunday, dismissing suggestions of tensions between their countries over handling the waves of migrants landing on southern Europe's shores.
The Ministers have exchanged harsh words in their respective capitals of Paris and Rome after France began turning back migrants at the French-Italian border earlier this month.
Thus invoking EU rules requiring refuge seekers to do so in the first European country where they set foot.
Following a meeting with France's Francois Hollande at the Expo 2015 world fair in Milan, Italy's Matteo Renzi said the two saw eye-to-eye and would push for an agreement with other European Union states at a summit scheduled for June 25-26.
