External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Sunday met her Maldivian counterpart Dunya Maumoon during which they reviewed the developmental projects in the island nation and also the possible agenda for a likely visit of Prime Minister Narendra Modi there.
Maumoon, who is on a private visit here, met Swaraj and discussed ways to boost the bilateral ties and maritime cooperation. “Ocean diplomacy. Maritime neighbours India-Maldives to strengthen ties as they commemorate 50 years of relations,” tweeted the spokesperson of the External Affairs Ministry.
There is a possibility of Modi travelling to the Maldives in March when he will also be visiting Sri Lanka. However, there is no official announcement of the visit so far.
