Maldives

Following his temporary release from jail, former President Mohamed Nasheed met today with the heads of diplomatic missions in Colombo and expressed the need for dialogue between the opposition and the Maldivian government, according to sources.

 

A “Made in Maldives” logo is in the works to be used for local products, announced the economics ministry Wednesday.

 

India's new representative in Maldives assured Wednesday that his country would continue to assist its island neighbour whenever required, as he assumed office.

 

Discussions to establish the Maldives-China free trade pact is scheduled to begin Monday in Bandos Island Resort.

 

Male’, the capital of Maldives. Less than six square kilometres of land on which 150,000 people live, crammed into small apartments in thousands of high-rises determinedly cemented into low-lying land just one metre above sea level.

 

A very literal translation of “Katti Hivvaru” is impetus, or a sudden burst of energy. It is a phrase that is often used by adults when describing young folks with too much energy who does spur-of-the-moment things. But as of recently, whenever I hear this very eloquent Dhivehi phrase I have begun associating it with ‘art’.

 

Events in Maldives are moving at a very fast pace that it is getting difficult for Analysts to keep track of the developments.

 

The Maldives government announced on Tuesday an end to a state of emergency, which was imposed last week after an alleged attempt to assassinate President Abdulla Yameen.

 

By declaring emergency, the Maldives has only shed its pretence of democracy.

 

Maldives declared a month-long state of emergency Wednesday in what has been extraordinary security measures following an explosion on a speedboat carrying the president and subsequent discovery of an arms haul.
