President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday he was open to adding a specific mention of Corsica in the French Constitution but rejected several other demands for autonomy made by the island’s nationalist leaders, Reuters reported.

The young president said mentioning Corsica in France’s supreme law would both recognize its identity and anchor it within the French Republic. He added that further talks would determine what the plan to mention it in the Constitution would entail. 

During his first visit to Corsica since his election last year, Macron said the Corsican language would not be given official status and added that local authorities would not be allowed to veto property purchases by non-residents.
