Maldives President pays tribute at Rajghat

New Delhi, Jan.2 : Maldives President Yameen Abdul Gayoom on Thursday laid a flower wreath at Rajghat, Mahatma Gandhi's memorial, here.


Situated on the banks of River Yamuna, the memorial at Rajghat was erected at the spot where Gandhi was cremated on January 30, 1948.

Accompanied by a high level ministerial delegation, Gayoom will be in India till January 4. He has held talks with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on key bilateral and regional issues.

President Pranab Mukherjee will also hold a banquet in honour of his Maldivian counterpart.

Gayoom's visit would 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 USD 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.
