Muijju called the first visit to India a 'success'

It is no longer a secret that the president of the Maldives, Mohammed Muijju, is pro-China. He even visited Beijing for the first time after being elected. Along with that, tension started with India. The Muijju government has sent back Indian troops stationed in the country.

A few days ago Mohammad Muijju visited India in this condition. Even the Indian media reported that he termed his first official visit as a great success. He is also hopeful that this visit will strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries.

Muijju came to New Delhi to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, elected for the third consecutive term.

He told India’s state-run media during the visit, “Strong relations between the two countries will similarly increase the prosperity of the Maldives in the future.”

According to reports, President Muijju along with a high-level government delegation met Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi at Rashtrapati Bhavan. They discussed various issues and attended a banquet together, where Muijju was seen sitting next to PM Modi. Since then, the relations between the two countries have been renewed in the world diplomatic circles.

In his meeting with Indian President Draupadi Murmu, the Maldivian leader expressed gratitude for the warm hospitality and acknowledged India’s continued support to Maldives. Indian External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar also met Muijju and expressed hope for closer cooperation between the two countries in the future.

Muijju became the President of Maldives in November last year. New Delhi sees Muizzur’s visit as an important step in restoring relations between India and the Maldives amid the changing circumstances.
