EUROPE - Open conflict between Paris and Rome on immigration

"Immigrants: Paris-Rome war," as the Rome daily. On 7 April, the Italian Interior Minister Roberto Maroni has announced that Rome would grant temporary residence permits valid in the Schengen area for migrants arrived en masse in Italy since January, mainly from Tunisia. The Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, has signed in the wake of the decree establishing these permits.

France "rejects" migrants, the newspaper said, while Paris has indicated it would refuse to undergo a wave of immigration from Italy. The Interior Minister, Claude Gueant, threatened to "bring back" on the Italian territory migrants who do not meet the conditions for entry into the French territory.
