The two got into a public spat last year after Trudeau criticized Italy’s stance on LGBTQ+ issues in a meeting with Meloni at the G7 leaders’ summit.

He was reacting to her government’s move to limit the recognition of parental rights to only the biological parent in families with same-sex parents.

Meloni later rejected the criticism and said Trudeau had fallen victim to fake news.
