EUROPEAN Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has hit out at Italy's Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini for criticising the EU over Rome's migration crisis, insisting his attacks are "not helping Italy".
"In the European budget there is money for infrastructure and they must be used completely, to the last penny".
Yesterday, Mr Conte hit out at Brussels for not taking sufficient action towards solving Europe's migration struggles.
He also declared Italy would no longer "indiscriminately" accept new migrants, and said immigration now "weights on each member state".
Speaking in the Senate on Wednesday, he said: “Italy is no longer available to indiscriminately welcome migrants, although involuntarily contributing to the increase of human trafficking and supplanting the responsibility that belongs to the European Union, blunting the bond of solidarity that weighs on each Member State".
