    (ANSAmed) - Rome, February 26 - Italy has exhibited "exemplary conduct" on the migrant crisis and could be "a model" for other "more hesitant" European countries, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker said after Rome talks with Premier Matteo Renzi Friday.

    Premier Matteo Renzi said that a "strong European initiative" was needed to bolster solidarity in the face of the migrant and refugee emergency. "We cannot imagine solidarity in one direction only, either you always show solidarity or you never do," he said, voicing the hope that Juncker "can win the contest with other heads of government that do not have the same sensitivity" and want to stop migrants.
