Paris persists in treating the Corsican question with arrogance


“My absolute priority is to alert the president to the gravity of the economic and social situation in Corsica” announced Gilles Simeoni before dinner. “I am willing to open a substantive dialogue, aimed at creating the conditions for a comprehensive political solution” added the president of the executive, who is also due to meet with Emmanuel Macron on Thursday morning, according to his entourage.
For his part, Jean-Guy Talamoni criticized the organization of the visit and the holding of the dinner: “Given the political and social situation in Corsica, this worldly framework seems to me, at least, unsuitable for opening a serious debate.” “Paris insists on treating the Corsican question with arrogance and “lowering the nationalist elected officials,” he denounced.


Four ministers with the President

Also invited to dinner were the four deputies from the island, three of whom are nationalists, the two senators as well as the mayors of Ajaccio and Bastia. The various nationalist formations have emerged strengthened from the last polls, including the municipal ones, and are preparing for the territorial elections of March 2021.
Accompanied by four members of the government – Jacqueline Gourault (Territorial cohesion), Gérald Darmanin (Interior), Marlène Schiappa (Citizenship) and Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne (Tourism) – Emmanuel Macron will provide an update Thursday morning on the progress of the project program for Corsica (economic development, water, waste, etc.). Then he will go to Bonifacio to meet tourism officials.

At the end of the afternoon, Emmanuel Macron will participate in Porticcio, near Ajaccio, in the seventh summit of Med7, an informal forum of southern EU countries, with the Italian leaders Giuseppe Conte, Spanish Pedro Sanchez, Greek Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Portuguese Antonio Costa, Cypriot Nikos Anastasiades and Maltese Robert Abela.
