Fishermen's killing: EU suggests 'bilateral track' to resolve India-Italy row
BRUSSELS/COPENHAGEN: European Union (EU) foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton has said the EU is "ready to work closely" to help resolve the issue of two Italian soldiers jailed in India for killing two Indian fishermen.
"In terms of what happened in India I've already had conversations with the Italian government, my door is always open, we're always ready to support," she told journalists Friday at an informal gathering of EU foreign ministers in Copenhagen.
"For many countries often there is a bilateral track that is pursued and can be successful," she advised.
"But the EU and the (EU) delegation on the ground (in New Delhi) and myself are always there, and I've already discussed this with the government and we're ready to work closely to see what we can do," she added.
Hopefully the norwegians with their well known and ever green sympathy for controversial killers will pitch in next, after all they have had ample experience in srilanka, no?
