Maldives President on SL trip tipped to endorse LLRC report

[TamilNet, Monday, 26 December 2011, 12:54 GMT]
In what appears to be a move to further strengthening diplomatic relationship between Maldives and Sri Lanka, Maldives President Mohamed Nasheed is on an invited trip to the island. While official sources have attributed the trip to other reasons, informed media circles in Colombo told TamilNet that Mr. Nasheed is there to endorse the LLRC report, which whitewashes the Colombo regime from all charges of genocide and war crimes, which was released by Sri Lanka recently. This visit of the leader of the tiny Asian country is a first step to getting the regional power India to officially approve and to market the LLRC report that is already coming under heavy criticisms from many quarters, observers said. The blessings of New Delhi-Washington powers are observed in such shadow wars of diplomacy even as protests in support of the demands of the Eezham Tamils are intensifying in Tamil Nadu.

The official site of the Maldives President’s Office had stated that the President is visiting Sri Lanka ‘to attend the Commissioning Parade of Sri Lanka Military Academy, on the invitation of the Sri Lankan government.’

President Nasheed came to power by toppling the three-decades rule of Mamoon Abdul Gayoom in the first-ever democratic elections held in Maldives in October 2008.

The main issues of the election campaign of Nasheed were human rights abuses and escalating drug-related situation in the country under the rule of Gayoom.

But observers on that country tell that both have escalated further under Nasheed.

Likewise, though Mr. Gayoom had maintained a diplomatic distance from the war between two nations in the island of Ceylon, Mr. Nasheed entered into a military alliance with the genocidal Colombo regime soon after he came into power.

The US Asst Secretary of State Robert Blake, who also has supported and shielded the Sri Lankan regime, and British conservatives are said to have a lot of influence in shaping Maldives’ foreign policy.
