President of Maldives meets Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh

New Delhi, Jan.1: President of Maldives Yameen Abdul Gayoom met Indian Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh on Wednesday shortly after he reached New Delhi on a four-day visit to the country for strengthening the bilateral ties between both nations.


Gayoom and his wife were received at the airport by Indian delegates and Minister of State E. Ahamed.

Accompanied by a high level ministerial delegation, Gayoom would be in India till January 04 and is scheduled to hold talks with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on key bilateral and regional issues. President Pranab Mukherjee would also hold a banquet in the honour of the Maldivian President.

Gayoom's visit would also reveal India's stand on offering assistance to Maldives and restart work on vital projects that were stalled.

In 2012, Maldives cancelled its biggest foreign investment project, a $511 million deal with Indian firm GMR Group to develop its international airport, raising questions over the future of foreign investment in the islands renowned for luxury resorts.
