Italy, France deepen economic, defense cooperation
ROME (AP) — Italian Premier Mario Draghi said that a bilateral treaty signed on Friday with French President Emmanuel Macron to strengthen bilateral cooperation would also help create a “true European defense." The treaty deepens cooperation “in crucial sectors, from security to justice, from research to industry,’’ Draghi told a press conference. That includes spending to create “a true European defense" that Draghi said “obviously is complementary to NATO" and doesn't substitute the alliance.“To be sovereign, Europe needs to know how to defend its borders. We need to create a real defense,'' he said.

Camped in Calais, migrants renew resolve to try for England
CALAIS, France (AP) — At the makeshift camps in France near Calais and Dunkirk, migrants are digging in, waiting for their chance to make a dash across the English Channel despite the deaths of at least 27 people this week when their boat sank a few miles (kilometers) from the French coast. Police have stepped up patrols in recent days and the weather has worsened, making this a bad time to attempt a crossing. But most migrants say the tragedy won’t prevent them from climbing into a flimsy inflatable boat packed with up to 50 people in hopes of reaching Britain.
Faced with the small crowd quite up, Stanislas Guérini tries to convince. "Emmanuel Macron came three months ago," he recalls. Since then, the budget has been voted to the National Assembly. And it's your MP, Saïd Ahamada, who voted the amendments to give a billion euros on transport to get off a number of neighborhoods. It's not words in the air! And to quote the increase in the envelope attributed to the renovation of certain neighborhoods.

"" Thanks to our arms, "the cup sighs a resident. "I never wanted to look away from the difficulties," says Stanislas Guérini. You have to stop your moments when you have to go to see people and make promises that in election season. I think we can, at the same time, come and see the difficulties and say that there are solutions. I do not listen to impassively. There are many things that have been made in this five-year. But we have many things left to do.
