Europe Ministers Meet in Paris         07/22 06:28

   European ministers are meeting in Paris in a new step to find an accord on 
the divisive issue of how to deal with migrants crossing the Mediterranean but, 
shut out by Italy and unwanted elsewhere, caught in political standoffs.

   PARIS (AP) -- European ministers are meeting in Paris in a new step to find 
an accord on the divisive issue of how to deal with migrants crossing the 
Mediterranean but, shut out by Italy and unwanted elsewhere, caught in 
political standoffs.

   Absent at Monday's closed-door meeting of interior and foreign ministers was 
Italy's populist Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, who tweeted a day earlier 
his disagreement with letting France and Germany determine refugee policy. In 
another tweet he said that "we intend to make ourselves respected."

   France has stressed the need for European countries to share arriving 
migrants, often traveling on traffickers' flimsy boats and rescued by NGOs.

   The meeting, called at the initiative of President Emmanuel Macron, precedes 
talks later Monday between the French leader and U.N. chiefs for refugees and 
migration.
