Maldivian journalists told that China will not interfere with Maldives’ sovereignty

Maldivian journalists in China have been told that the country will not interfere in the domestic affairs of the Maldives.

Meeting with Maldivian journalists, Director of the Chinese Foreign Ministry’s Asian Department Xin Wang said that a lot had been planned between the two nations.

“China is just helping the Maldives pull itself up. It will be Maldives that makes the final decision on everything relevant to this development,” Haveeru reported Xin as saying.

President Abdulla Yameen announced earlier this month that increased ties with China were part of a policy of looking east. Criticising the interference of “Western colonial powers”, Yameen noted that working with China does not bring the same challenges.

  1. And Western Powers keep using the environment as a tool to curb progress in developing nations.They turn a blind eye to nations whose actions are favorable to them. Truth is no one cares about the environment.

    Really? Curbing progress? I suggest people take an interest in their own streets before blaming Western powers. Walking around Male you find rubbish on every street corner just waiting to be washed away by the rain into the ocean.

    The streets are filthy, the ocean is now full of debris and you have an island leaking toxic waste into your water supply, that is the fault of Maldivians, destroying their own environment, not Western powers.
