Maldives’ Nasheed criticises US for no support
Male: Former Maldives` president Mohamed Nasheed has criticised the US for not supporting him after he was ousted in a `coup`, even as he said that he governed according to American principles and wanted to be a close friend of Israel.
He said that he governed Maldives on the basis of American ideals and wanted the country to be a moderate Islamic society and have close relations with western countries.
Speaking at a programme known as `Democracy` now shown in TV and Radio channels operated by voluntary organisations, Nasheed said that he felt very sad, as he governed according to American principles and wanted to be a close friend of Israel, but the US didn`t acknowledge his way and supported the current President Mohamed Waheed.
Nasheed is in the US to promote his documentary movie `The Island President` at which he advocates the challenges faced by Global Warming.
He has also criticised the US for not doing much work on Climate Change issue. Furthermore, he asked the US government to reconsider its decision and call for an early election at Maldives.
