Rome, March 27 - Outgoing Premier Mario Monti told
the House Wednesday that he was "stunned" by Giulio Terzi's
decision to quit as foreign minister in a row over two Italian
marines facing homicide charges in India.
Monti said Terzi gave no warning he would quit on Tuesday,
adding that his real aim was "to achieve another end and this
may become clearer in the near future".
There has been media speculation that Terzi, who was part
of Monti's emergency technocrat government, may embark on a
political career with ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi's People of
Freedom (PdL).
The PdL has led criticism of the government's handling of
the case of the marines accused of killing two fishermen on an
anti-piracy mission off the coast of India last year.
Terzi shocked parliament Tuesday by saying he was quitting
because Monti sent the marines back to India against his wishes
this month.
Terzi initially reneged on a pledge to return the two men,
who had been allowed to come home to vote in last month's
general election, before a government U-turn sparked by an
escalating diplomatic tussle in which India blocked the Italian
ambassador from leaving the country.
