Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was described as 'an indecorous old man' by opposition MP Paola Pellegrini
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi was under fire tonight after claiming Italy would only accept immigrants who were 'pretty girls from Albania'.
The 73-year-old politician made the remark during a meeting with Albanian counterpart Sali Berisha at a summit and his guest was left visibly uncomfortable by the joke.
The two, who had just held talks on the number of Albanians allowed into Italy, were speaking at a press conference in Rome when Berlusconi said: 'We will only accept pretty girls from Albania.'
The Italian Premier, who is in the middle of a divorce battle with estranged wife Veronica Lario, 53, also joked with photographers: 'You know I am single now.'...........
