In a recent interview, Nasheed said that one of his priorities on returning to power would be to spearhead an international convention against ‘land grab’ by foreign countries in the disguise of investment.
In an interview to The Wire, former president Mohamed Nasheed talks about the current crisis in Maldives, his request for military backing from India, and more.
The assurance was given by Maldivian foreign minister Mohamed Asim during talks with his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj.
President Abdulla Yameen’s pro-India statements came after reports that there were doubts in New Delhi on the Maldives’ decision to sign an FTA with China.
China already has an FTA with Pakistan and is currently negotiating a deal with Sri Lanka.
