ROME: Italy on Friday initiated international arbitration proceedings in the case of two of its marines facing trial in India for the 2012 killing of two fishermen, the foreign ministry announced.


The unilateral move by the Italian government follows the failure of direct negotiations with the Indian government over a case which has severely strained diplomatic relations between the two countries, the ministry said.
