Antoni Martí Petit, Head of Government of the Principality of Andorra, and Nicola Renzi, Minister of Foreign Affairs, Political Affairs and Justice of the Republic of San Marino, visited Monaco on Saturday, March 18, for discussions on the topic of the European Union.
The two visitors were received in audience by the Sovereign Prince in the presence of HE Serge Telle, Minister of State, and Gilles Tonelli, Minister for Foreign Affairs and Cooperation.
During a working lunch hosted by the Minister of State, the representatives of the three microstates discussed ongoing negotiations with the European Union, which started in March 2015. At the end of the meal, Minister of State Telle said: “We have come together to work jointly on the relations of our three countries with the European Union. We have a common interest to find the necessary strategy to define our relations (…) and must invent a new way to conduct our work with the European Union.”

Feiza Ben Mohamed, a spokesperson for the Muslim Federation of the South of France, has expressed great surprise at a decision by an administrative tribunal to uphold a ban on the so-called burkini on beaches in Cannes, an ordinance issued July 28 by Cannes Mayor David Lisnard “on the grounds that burkinis, which are popular with Muslim women, could risk disrupting public order while France was the target of terrorist attacks"
“This suggests that women when covered are affiliated with terrorism,” Ben Mohamed said.
The federation, who posted on Facebook “We strongly condemn the illegal and abusive use of such procedures for the unique purpose of stigmatisation and exclusion”, will now take the case to the Council of State to overturn the ruling, introduced by the town’s mayor. “One can’t invoke the war against terror in banning the burkini. “Such a ruling masks the inability of our elected officials to take concrete and effective measures against terrorism,” she added.
On August 5, the mayor of Villeneuve-Loubet, Lionnel Luca also imposed a burkini ban on his beaches. Mandelieu-la-Napoule passed the by-law in … 2014.
