France blamed what it called called baseless verbal attacks from Italy's political leaders, which it said were "without precedent since world war two".

Italy's two deputy prime ministers, far-right Matteo Salvini and Luigi Di Maio of the populist, anti-establishment Five Star Movement, have in recent months criticised the French president, Emmanuel Macron, on a host of inflammatory issues, from immigration to the gilets jaunes (yellow vest) anti-government demonstrations…."
