The Maldives again backed India at Saarc foreign ministers’ meeting on Thursday by helping India block the proposal to hold the 19th Saarc summit in Pakistan. Earlier also Maldives stood for India at OIC earlier this year. Islamabad is the host for the summit which was to take place in 2016 but has remained suspended after India’s call to boycott the event because of the Uri terror attack carried out by terrorists from across the border the same year. In his Saarc address, Maldives foreign minister Abdulla Shahid called for the creation of a conducive environment to reach consensus on convening the 19th Saarc summit.
