After Defence Pact With China, Maldives Prez Orders All Indian Officials to Leave by May 10

Adding to his anti-India stance, Maldives President Mohamed Muizzu has affirmed that no Indian military personnel, not even those in civilian clothing, would be present inside his country after May 10, stated a media report.

A week back an Indian civilian team reached the Maldives to take charge of one of the three aviation platforms in the island nation, much before the March 10 deadline agreed by the two countries for the withdrawal of Indian military personnel.

Addressing the Baa atoll Eydhafushi residential community, President Muizzu stated that due to his government’s success in expelling Indian troops from the country, people who spread false rumours, are attempting to twist the situation, a news portal reported.

“There will be no Indian troops in the country come May 10. Not in uniform and not in civilian clothing. The Indian military will not be residing in this country in any form of clothing. I state this with confidence,” he said.

His statement coincided with the signing of an agreement with China to receive free military aid.
