Italy working towards 'amicable settlement' with India
Row intensifies over Italian marines wanted for murder15 March, 20:05
The Italian anti-piracy sharpshooters are charged with shooting and killing on February 15 last year Indian fishermen Jelestine Valentine and Ajesh Binki from the oil tanker Enrica Lexie, which they were guarding. A diplomatic row between Rome and New Delhi has intensified after Italy's decision not to send them back after a trip home to vote in February's general election.
United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Friday called for a "peaceful resolution and respect for international law" in the dispute.
In a statement, the Italian government said it was pushing for the application on international law, "as expressly advocated by Ban Ki-moon".
