Italy’s Economy Minister Giovanni Tria cancelled a meeting with his French counterpart in Paris on Wednesday as a diplomatic row spiralled over Rome’s refusal to take in an overcrowded migrant ship. “The minister #GiovanniTria has cancelled his meeting with the French Minister of the Economy and Finance (Bruno) #LeMaire,” his ministry said on Twitter. The tweet confirmed that Tria’s meeting with German Economy Minister Olaf Scholz scheduled for Thursday would go ahead in Berlin.
