Maldives parliament passes resolution for  PM Modi’s speech

Prime Minister Modi is likely to visit Maldives next week on his maiden visit abroad in second term of his government. 

He had not made a state visit to Maldives during his first term but attended the swearing in ceremony of President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih last November. 

Maldives government had welcomed the victory of PM Modi saying it will give impetus to the bilateral relations which are on upswing now. 

Indian government had announced an economic assistance worth 1.5 billion US dollars during President Solih visit to New Delhi in December.  

Wednesday’s session was the only second session of new parliament in Maldives as the inaugural sitting took place on Tuesday. 

Former President Mohamed Nasheed has been elected speaker of new parliament.
