Fostering India Maldives relations through Islamic finance
Views & Download
India and Maldives have enjoyed warm and friendly affairs since Maldives became independent in 1965. Disputes between the two countries have been negligible. In November 1988, at the behest of the Maldivian government, Indian paratroopers and naval forces crushed a coup attempt by mercenaries. This was known at the time as Operation Cactus. India's action, viewed by some critics as an indication of Indian ambitions to be a regional police officer, were regarded by countries such as the United States, the Soviet Union, Britain, Nepal, and Bangladesh as legitimate assistance to a friendly government and in keeping with India's strategic role in South Asia. In the 1980s and 1990s, Indian and Maldivian leaders maintained regular consultations at the highest levels.
