Maldivian President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih will be traveling to Qatar and Bangladesh on an official visit.
The spokesperson of the President’s Office, Mohamed Mabrook Azeez, said President Solih will depart from the Maldives on March 14.
His first stop will be in Qatar, after which he will travel to Bangladesh on March 15 to attend a ceremony held on the occasion of Bangladesh’s founder Sheikh Mujibur Rahman’s birthday.
The Maldives joined Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, and other Arab nations in cutting off diplomatic ties with Qatar on June 5, 2017, on accusations that Qatar supports terrorism.
While the Maldives recently reinstated ties with Qatar after Saudi Arabia and its allies agreed in January to end the political row, Mabrook said the purpose of the President’s visit to Qatar is to formalize the reinstatement of ties.
