Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has sent an open letter to his Czech counterpart Andrej Babiš, who refused to take any of the 450 migrants rescued by Italy at the weekend, calling the Italian approach to immigration a “road to hell”.

According to Reuters, Conte said Rome had the “high road of legality and shared responsibility”, adding “those who set foot in a European country, set foot in Europe”. The Italian Prime Minister has also invited his Czech counterpart to Rome to discuss the migration crisis.
