ROME (Reuters) - Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio on Monday reiterated that France's policies in Africa were creating poverty and causing migration, hours after France summoned the Italian ambassador to Paris to protest his assertions.

 

"France is one of those countries that by printing money for 14 African states prevents their economic development and contributes to the fact that the refugees leave and then die in the sea or arrive on our coasts," Di Maio told reporters.

 

Di Maio was referring to the CFA franc -- a currency used in 14 west and central African nations, which is tied to the euro at a fixed exchange rate, with the peg guaranteed by France.

 

Di Maio, who leads the anti-establishment 5-Star Movement, said the European Union should "address the question of the decolonisation of Africa", accusing France of still treating a number of African countries as vassal states.

Apparently what he said is considered not PC, but, really, who would have thought of western nations exploiting the resources of the 3rd world..

Sometimes politics shows its blatant hypocrisy.

Finally an Italian politician with a full grasp of the facts. France is massively contributing to draining the EU funds.

And Africa and some Pacific nations. Time for this corrupt country to exit its colonial mindset.

 

Under Macron the imperialist colonial mindset will get worse not better. He has delusions of Napoleonic grandeur and making France the world power many French think it is.
