    India ignored facts and realities says Maldives on extension of emergency

    "The Government of Maldives takes note of the public statements issued by the Government of India that ignore the facts and ground realities with regard to the ongoing political developments in the Maldives. The assertion by the Government of India that the extension of the State of Emergency by the People's Majlis was unconstitutional is a clear distortion of facts, which ignore the Constitution and Laws of the Maldives," the Maldives government said in a statement.

    "It is our sincere desire to see that the democracy in Maldives is restored. This is also the desire of the people of Maldives. We do not see any valid reason for extension of the State of Emergency," the Ministry for External Affairs had said.

    "There is no doubt that the Maldives is experiencing one of the most difficult periods in the history of the nation. It is therefore important that friends and partners in the international community, including India, refrain from any actions that could hinder resolving the situation facing the country. The Government of Maldives reiterates its firm commitment to work closely with the international community, including India, to address the concerns they might have," the statement from Maldives also read.
