Calls for help from the German refugee ship Geo Barents after Italy refused to take the rescued. The boat people in Sicily were only allowed to disembark after protests.

Atlantic alliance, EU values, sanctions against Moscow. During the election campaign, Giorgia Meloni (45) signaled support and partnership to the western world. Emmanuel Macron (44) in particular hoped for good bilateral relations with Italy’s first head of government. But only three weeks after Melonis took office, the neighbors are already faced with a diplomatic shambles. Reason: the refugee policy of the new right-wing government in Rome.

Both countries want the EU to cap gas prices and provide additional billions in loans against their own energy and economic crisis – a new aid package that some EU countries, including powerful Germany, are rejecting. Macron opted for a strategic alliance with Italy. And so the French President was also the first foreign head of state to visit the newly appointed Prime Minister in Rome.
