PARIS (Reuters) - Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni and new French President Emmanuel Macron called on Sunday for a deeper integration of the European Union and said they would address the migration crisis at a working dinner in Paris.

Macron said Europe had been deaf to Italy's warnings amid an influx of migrants from northern Africa, while Gentiloni called for the bloc to draw up a common migration policy.

The two leaders of euro zone member states also said they wanted a strengthening of the EU, with Gentiloni calling for the monetary union to move towards a fiscal and banking union.
