New Delhi, March 25 - Since sending two Italian
marines back to India to face charges of killing two fishermen
off the coast there, "constructive dialogue" has been
reinstilled between the two countries, Italian Foreign
Undersecretary Staffan De Mistura said Monday.
Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone were sent back to
India on Friday after a two-week diplomatic tug-of-war between
the two countries that has exacerbated political tension within
Italy and between Rome and New Delhi.
Italy had announced the servicemen would not return to
India after they came home to vote in last month's general
election.
This prompted India to order the Italian ambassador to New
Delhi not to leave the country which, in turn, led to Rome to
make a U-turn and send the servicemen back.
On Monday the Italian foreign ministry said relations with
India were calming down.
"This atmosphere can only help us find a way out of this
crisis while recognizing our position, given the urgency on our
part to bring our marines back to Italy with their heads held
high," said De Mistura.
