New Delhi, August 13 -Italian government envoy
Staffan De Mistura travelled to New Delhi on Tuesday to meet two
Italian marines facing murder charges in India, Italian
diplomatic sources told ANSA.
De Mistura will meet Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore
Girone and their lawyers during his three-day visit.
He will also hold talks with Indian Foreign Minister Salman
Khurshid on Wednesday.
The government envoy told ANSA that four marines who were
on board the E. Lexie merchant ship with Latorre and Girone will
not be sent to New Delhi to testify on the incident in which two
Indian fishermen died.
Latorre and Girone are accused by Indian authorities of the
double homicides of Valentine (aka Gelastine) and Ajesh Binki in
Feburary 2012 after allegedly mistaking them for pirates while
guarding the merchant ship off the Kerala coast.
The four marines, De Mistura told ANSA, will not be sent to
India in "a decision taken in Italy on all levels, including
mine".
"We are confident a solution will be found," he added.
Italy's Foreign Minister Emma Bonino last week repeated the
government's intention to bring home the two marines.
The government's objective, she said, is to "bring them
home".
"With radical obstinacy and sound realism," she added, "we
can do it".
