Rome, April 9 - United Nations Secretary-General
Ban-ki Moon said in Rome Tuesday that he hoped for a "harmonious
and judicious" resolution "with dialogue" to Italy's row with
India over two Italian marines on trial in New Delhi for alleged
homicide.
Ban said he discussed the "regrettable situation that
involves two UN nations with Italian President Giorgio
Napolitano this morning" and was due to discuss it again later
Tuesday with outgoing Premier and interim Foreign Minister Mario
Monti.
Last month Monti stepped in to fill the shoes of Giulio
Terzi who stepped down as foreign minister over the diplomatic
tug-of-war with India.
Italian anti-pirate marines Massimiliano Latorre and
Salvatore Girone are in India on charges of shooting and killing
fishermen Jelestine "Valentine" and Ajesh Binki after allegedly
mistaking them for pirates while guarding a mercantile ship off
the Kerala coast in February 2012.
After a drawn-out diplomatic row, Italy agreed to hand the
men over to Indian authorities last month despite contesting
India's right to jurisdiction, given the incident took place in
international waters.
Italy has repeatedly said it welcomes independent
third-party arbitration.
