PM Modi to visit Singapore, Maldives next week

The Prime Minister will then be in Maldives on November 17 to attend the swearing in ceremony of newly elected President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih.

Maldivian Democratic Party leader Solih defeated incumbent Abdullah Yameen in presidential race in September.

Prime Minister Modi had telephoned Solih to congratulate him on his win while Solih had invited PM Modi to attend his swearing in ceremony.

After a tumultuous relationship under President Yameen, ties between India and Maldives are again warming up. Prime Minister’s visit to Maldives in the backdrop of change of guard in that country is expected to pave way for a stronger partnership.
