Maldives President Warns India Against Interfering in Its Internal Affairs

Maldives President Abdul Yameen

In the Presidential statement issued, "the Government of Maldives warmly welcomes The Government took note of its announcement to hold the first round of Presidential elections during early September and encouraged all relevant stakeholders to offer the Commission their full, unreserved support for the conduct of their work". In a statement issued on Thursday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the nation was experiencing one of the most hard periods in its history.

However, the Island nation reiterated its commitment to work closely with the global community, including India, to address the concerns they might have.

The UN human rights chief has described the imposition of a state of emergency following a power struggle with the Supreme Court as "an all-out assault on democracy".

Yameen imposed a state of emergency on February 5 for 15 days to annul a Supreme Court ruling that quashed convictions against nine opposition leaders and ordered his government to free those held in prison. Responding to an earlier offer of talks by Yameen, the Joint Opposition led by Nasheed's Maldivian Democratic Party wrote to Guterres asking him to mediate and to oversee the talks. He said that India has ignored the constitution and law of the Maldives in its statement.

The Maldives has made this statement amidst concern over the increase in the period of emergency in India by the Maldives.

When parliament approved the extension of emergency, the ruling party legislators also sought a Supreme Court opinion through a resolution on the approval without the quorum.

Maldives is in the grip of a crisis following its declaration of a state of emergency and a crackdown on political opponents, media and its judiciary. "Other than implementing the necessary measures stated in the decree imposing the state of emergency, it ensures no other restriction on the daily lives of the people", it said.

There is no doubt that the Maldives is experiencing one of the most hard periods in the history of the nation.

"It also requests the worldwide community to refrain from any actions that could hinder resolving the situation the country is facing", the President's Office said.

The Maldivian Foreign Ministry on Friday reiterated firm commitment to work closely with the global community to address concerns it may have following the extension of the state of emergency.
