India is considering military intervention in the Maldives

Indian media come out with materials that discuss the possibility of entering the Indian military contingent in the Maldives. The reason is the political crisis associated with the decision of the Supreme Court, which reversed the sentence against the ex-President of the Maldives, Mohammed Nashid, and also 8 people who are accused of terrorist activities. The opposition calls these people persecuted for political reasons.

The court after the verdict unexpectedly announced the suspension of his own activities for an indefinite period due to the crisis situation in the country.

Indian Prime Minister Norendra Modi phoned US President Donald Trump, who was told that "New Delhi cannot stay away from the crisis in the Maldives."

India is considering military intervention in the Maldives

The Indian press writes that the Maldives "are included in the regional sphere of India." It is noted that in recent years in the Maldives has grown Chinese influence. Apparently, this topic Modi and discussed with Trump.

Earlier, the Indian military had landed in the Maldives. We are talking about the operation 1988, when Indian paratroopers landed on the archipelago from the IL-76 air force of India. The landing was carried out near the airport Male (capital of the Maldives). Then in the Maldives, there was an attempt at a military coup involving the forces of Sri Lanka, which (attempt) India suppressed.

Now New Delhi again suspects a foreign influence in destabilizing the situation in the Maldives, which officially called (especially in recent years) India the most important partner.

Against the background of statements that India should not again interfere in the internal affairs of the Maldivian state, there are those in New Delhi who consider the Maldivian crisis to be brought in from the outside, and therefore speak of the possibility of new military intervention to restore stability and good neighborly relations.

    Indians also can’t sit still, I wanted to fight with the permission of the United States. Peacefully resolving problems is no longer an option.

        There are Seychelles next door. In general, most likely, the locals will make a little noise, and they will go further “mix cocktails” and clean up the bungalow.

    And then trump indicates what and how to do! The Hindus made only one mistake — they called the United States! If they can help the Maldivians, then let them drop troops. Fortunately, they have experience! But, a call to the usa shows that Indians are an independent state, solving strategic problems at the direction of the usa!

    It seems that the Americans want to light a fire in the most densely populated region of the planet. Face China with India. Modi calls his patron - get briefing and get support
    Such presidents were also in Russia - each step was coordinated with the White House.

    And after that they are a sovereign state-in?)))) Ugh, as opposed to “the king of the whole world” they ask permission.
    Something does not look like the "end of the unipolar world" in fact only Iran and the DPRK do not bow to ........ well, we, many times humiliated, snarl with hope for mercy

    Admonished. Is this probably so that the United States does not run into and give India its "good"? They also want to sit on two chairs. In the BRICS, they smile at Russia, but they do not forget to smile even wider at the United States.

    After the collapse of the USSR, the process of redistributing spheres of influence by any means intensified in the world. The desire of India to have puppet powers in the Maldives, is quite an ordinary case in world practice. The USA is a good teacher in this matter.

      The Maldives, and so, practically, under a mattress protectorate, that’s why they would crush the springboard when landing some striped one .. well, it’s clear to the Chinese comrades that they don’t

    What world is becoming vile when even developing countries become, according to the concepts of "themselves on their own mind." However, there is nothing to be surprised if, even in interpersonal communication, "I" and "My" always prevail and you can’t get anywhere from this. There is natural selection here too. But now, why should Modi ask the US for permission to rob in the Maldives and at the same time participate in the BRICS, SCO. God works in mysterious ways. I still feel a sense of frustration and something else inexplicable, when Yeltsin, after conspiring with Shushkevich and Kravchuk, made the collapse of the USSR, immediately called Clinton in the USA and boasted about it
