Rome, March 26 - Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano named outgoing Premier Mario Monti as interim foreign
affairs minister Tuesday night after the surprise resignation of
Giulio Terzi.
Monti met with the president several hours after Terzi
shocked his colleagues by resigning over a decision to send two
Italian marines back to India to stand trial on charges of
homicide.
Terzi said he did not agree with the government's decision
to return the pair, accused of killing two fishermen while on
anti-piracy duty.
Monti had said he was "stunned" by Terzi's decision adding
that he did not "share" the ex-foreign minister's stance.
Monti also said he would appear before both houses of
parliament on Wednesday to discuss the case.
The men, Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone, were
sent back to India on Friday in a U-turn after Rome had said the
pair would not return after being allowed to come home to vote.
They had previously returned to India after a Christmas
leave.
"My reservations had no impact and the decision was not
mine," Terzi told parliament earlier in the day.
"My voice went unheard".
