Rome, October 29 - Italian Foreign Minister Guilio
Terzi contacted his newly appointed Indian counterpart Salman
Khurshid to stress Italy's wish to bring home two anti-pirate
marines held for allegedly killing two local fishermen, the
foreign ministry said Monday.
India's Supreme Court has still not given its ruling on
Italy's petition that it should have jurisdiction over the case
because the incident took place on an Italian ship.
Marines Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone have been
at the centre of a diplomatic row between Italy and India since
being detained in February for charges that include the homicide
The Italian government believes that, regardless of who has
jurisdiction, the marines should be exempt from prosecution in
India as they were military personnel working on an anti-piracy
mission.
They were granted bail in June, but must remain in Indian
territory.
On Sunday, Salman Khurshid was named Indian foreign
minister by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, who reorganized
roughly a third of his cabinet in what was widely seen as a bid
to regain electoral support ahead of elections.
