Maldives and India sign 3 key agreements

The governments of Maldives and India have signed three key agreements.

The three agreements were signed on behalf of the Indian government by Minister of External Affairs, Sushma Swaraj during her current two-day visit to the Maldives last Sunday.

The three agreements exchanged were:

  •  Agreement on Visa Facilitation for Diplomatic and Official Passport Holders
  • Agreement on Development Cooperation
  • Agreement on Renewable Energy

The exchange of the three agreements has been hailed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Maldives as an addition of “new dimensions to age-old ties” between Maldives and India.

Swaraj, last Sunday, took part in a joint ministerial to discuss cooperation on a wide range of fields such as health, economy, defence, and business and capacity development.

Swaraj and her Maldivian counterpart, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Maldives, Abdulla Shahid, also engaged in bilateral discussions last Sunday.

Following the meeting, Shahid announced that the discussions had been productive and that he was “very pleased with the progress made on the commitments” announced by the Indian government during President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih’s state visit to India in December.

Swaraj has also called on the Speaker of Parliament, Qasim Ibrahim, and is scheduled to call on President Solih later this Monday.
