China ‘willing to deepen’ cooperation with Maldives

China said Thursday it is willing to deepen mutually beneficial cooperation with the Maldives after Chinese Ambassador Zhang Lizhong met Maldives president-elect Ibrahim Mohamed Solih.

“China is willing to work with the new Maldives government to consolidate the traditional friendship between the two countries, deepen mutually beneficial cooperation and upgrade China-Maldives relations to new heights,” Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said Thursday.

There has been speculation that Solih will change Maldives’ policy toward China, raising concerns that the Chinese projects in the Maldives may be scrapped, but Lu said Solih has assured the continuation of the projects.

Solih told the Chinese ambassador that the new Maldives government will work to strengthen relations with China, abide by the cooperation agreement signed between the two countries and continue to implement existing cooperation projects, according to Lu.

The two countries will further discuss cooperation in people’s livelihood, infrastructure and tourism, Lu noted.

Solih won the election on September 24 by a 16.8 percentage margin, with an 89.2 per cent voter turnout, defeating incumbent president Abdulla Yameen.

Yameen will continue his presidency until November 17, according to the Maldives constitution.

China has part-funded and built an extension to the Maldives’ international airport, as well as the new “China-Maldives Friendship Bridge” linking it to the capital Male.

I don’t think you will be having a female head of state in the Maldives anytime soon. You are ultra conservative sunni muslims after all practising the most backward and intolerant form of wahabbi islam. Your busybody ‘religious scholars’ would have a fit if she got elected. Look at the hissy fit they threw over the ‘idols’ in the Coralarium.
Sadly, the former first lady has no chance. She should enjoy the rest of her life shopping.


Ok. Collect your check from RAW for today’s work. Your income in the Mumbai brothel isn’t good enough


The best thing that president elect Solih can do to protect his country from the clutches of the Chinese Dragon is the boot out all Chinese ‘advisors’ in the country and renegotiate all the dodgy contracts already signed with Chinese companies.
It is not necessary to join their Belt and Road Initiative either as it favours only Chinese businesses.
Stop bootlicking the Chinese and liberate yourselves from their Debt Trap clutches.


The Hyena is in tears for the sheep!!
I know you also work in the same brothel where MissIndia works.
