Discussions in Male about the withdrawal of Indian troops, what Delhi wants

The President of the country, Mohamed Muijju, has asked to withdraw the Indian troops stationed in the Maldives by March 15. Delhi feels that there is still an opportunity to talk on this issue. The representatives of the two countries held a second meeting on Wednesday.

Indian media Hindustan Times says that neither party has disclosed what was discussed in this meeting in Male. However, Indian representatives are still talking in favor of keeping troops in the Maldives. They have given their own arguments in this meeting. Indian representatives want Maldives to withdraw from the decision.

Before this, the first meeting of the year was held between these two countries on January 14. However, it has been discussed several times before. At the end of each round of talks, the Maldives said it was adamant on the decision.

At the beginning of talks last year, it seemed that Muizzou would step down from his position. But the issue of moving the army again comes to the fore in the issue of mocking Modi.

According to Hindustan Times, the number of Indian troops in Maldives is 77. But another media NDTV says, this number is 88.

Three Maldivian ministers had to be dismissed for posting on social media mocking Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The three dismissed Maldivian ministers are Maryam Sheuna, Malsha and Hasan Jehan.

Earlier in the year, Modi visited Lakshadweep, the country’s smallest autonomous region comprising 36 islands. The purpose of his visit was to promote the tourism industry of the area of ​​32 square kilometers. These ministers shared some pictures and videos of Modi’s visit to Lakshadweep on social media and taunted him.

According to Hindustan Times, many Indians decided to boycott Maldives after this incident. Most of them are tourists. This incident happened at a time when the President of Maldives Mohamed Muijju was on a visit to China. Meanwhile, he urged China to send more tourists.

On the issue of the dismissal of three ministers, the Chinese media Global Times says that India has the mentality to dominate Asia. They want to do the same in Maldives. The report also mentions that Beijing has warned Delhi not to involve or blame China in this. It has even been suggested to change our policy towards neighbors.

Fudan University’s Center for South-Asian Studies Deputy Director Lin Minwang says that Maldivian President Muijju has already changed the foreign policy. He started giving more importance to China than India. But many say that he is not doing this on purpose. He wants the good of the country first, then foreign policy.
