Two Italian marines charged in India with killing two fishermen while on anti-piracy duty will not return from a special home visit granted to allow them to vote in last month’s general election,the Italian foreign ministry said on Monday.

The ministry said that India had not responded to Italian requests to seek a diplomatic solution to the case and there was now a formal dispute between the two countries over the terms of the United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea.

“Italy has informed the Indian government that,given the formal initiation of an international dispute between the two states,the marines Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone will not return to India at the end of their home leave.”
