Narendra Modi missed out on visiting Maldives in March 2015 last minute. According to latest reports, PM Modi is scheduled to visit Maldives in 2016. Ahmed Mohamed, the Maldives High Commissioner to India said:
The signals have higher luminosity than what we used to see in the past.
In 2015, the country was struck off the agenda last minute, just before President Mohamed Nasheed was sentenced to 13 years in prison for terrorism charges. Visiting the country was a part of the Indian Ocean tour of Sri Lanka, Mauritius and Seychelles.
After a rough patch of the last few years, relations between the two countries have improved in the last couple of months. In October 2015, Sushma Swaraj visited Maldives and produced a blueprint of strengthening country ties through discussions on skill development, economy, tourism and health.
The date of Narendra Modi visit isn’t confirmed yet though.
