Italy’s foreign ministry on Wednesday disclosed that it had subpoenaed the French ambassador amidst a diplomatic dispute between the two countries over the management of a migrant crisis.

On Tuesday French President Emmanuel Macron accused Italy of “irresponsibility” after the Rome government refused to open its ports to the NGO Aquarius ship carrying hundreds of migrants in the Mediterranean.

Italy’s new populist government was quick to respond to the accusations denouncing “hypocritical lessons” from countries like France on migrants.
