PM Modi To Visit Maldives On June 7-8; 1st Bilateral Visit In Second Term
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will be visiting the Maldives on June 7-8, as his first bilateral visit after assuming office for the second term, sources said on Monday.
PM Modi had earlier visited the Maldives in November 2018, to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Maldivian President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih, after he defeated Abdulla Yameen in the presidential polls.
This was followed by Sohil’s visit to India in December after which New Delhi had announced financial assistance of $1.4 billion to Male in terms of budgetary support, currency swap and concessional lines of credit to fulfill the socio-economic development programmes in the country.
During Solih’s visit, the two leaders had agreed to work together to create institutional linkages and to establish a framework of cooperation in health cooperation issues, particularly cancer treatment, mutual legal assistance on criminal matters, investment promotion, human resource development, and tourism.
