New Delhi: India will get a fresh update on
the situation in Maldives which has witnessed political
turmoil for the past couple of months when Maldivian Foreign
Minister Abdul Samad Abdulla meets his Indian counterpart here
on Tuesday.

Maldives Foreign Minister arrives here on his first visit
abroad and is scheduled to meet External Affairs Minister S M
Krishna for talks tomorrow, official Spokesperson in the
Ministry of External Affairs Syed Akbaruddin said.

Maldives plunged into political turmoil after 44-year-old
Nasheed, the country`s first democratically-elected President,
resigned on February 7 in what he claims was a coup.

The new regime is headed by Nasheed`s former deputy
Mohammaed Waheed Hassan.

Nasheed had said that he will visit India in the middle
of this month and meet various political leaders.
