However, tensions in bilateral relations between India and the Maldives arose when the Maldives’ president, China-friendly Abdulla Yameen, took office in 2013.
Ibrahim Solih was elected President of the Maldives in 2018, and bilateral relations have returned to normal.
In 2020, Abdulla Yameen, the former president of the Maldives, launched the China-backed ‘India Out’ campaign in the country, which is based on misinformation and false propaganda and aims to disrupt bilateral relations. This campaign was opposed by the Maldives’ ruling party and other major parties. The campaign was banned by Maldivian President Ibrahim Mohamed Solih in April 2022.
