The Government invites a European Union fact finding mission to visit the Maldives

Following Friday’s mob violence, the Government has invited a European Union fact finding mission to visit Male’.

The Government’s decision to invite an EU mission was to boost its efforts to implementing the agenda for democratic reform in the country.

The EU Ambassador to the Maldives, Mr. Francisco da Camara Gomes, had praised the President’ reform proposals of 9 June, during his call on the President last June to present his credentials.

The EU is also an important development partner of the Maldives and accounts for a substantial share of tourist arrival into the country.
