France recalls its ambassador to Italy after ‘provocations’ by Italian leaders

(CNN)France has recalled its ambassador from Italy for consultations over “unprecedented” and “repeated” criticism by Italian officials, the French foreign ministry said in a statement Thursday.

“For several months, France has been the target of repeated criticism, baseless attacks and outrageous declarations that everyone knows about,” it said.
“This is unprecedented since the end of the war. To have disagreements is one thing, to exploit the relationship for electoral aims is another.”
