Minister of Foreign Affairs Ms Dunya Maumoon has issued the following statement in response to questions from the media about her response to the Majlis on 5 November.
 
“I responded to the questions from members of the Majlis with honesty and with utmost respect to the Constitution and the laws of the Maldives. My answers were based on the most accurate information available. The information shows that the issue of Maritime Silk Road was in fact discussed during the Chinese President’s recent visit to India, and it is confirmed by the statement issued about the visit, which can be obtained from the following link:

Contrary to the claims and speculations in the media, the documents about the discussion on the Silk Road are publicly available, and the information I presented to the Majlis was obtained from the publicly available documents.
 
President Yameen’s Government will do whatever it takes to protect and preserve the independence and sovereignty of the Maldives. President Yameen’s foreign policy is aimed at promoting the national interests of the Maldives, not the interests of any other country. The Maldivian public is concerned that the opposition MDP and its media instruments are actively involved in promoting the objectives and interests of another country in the Maldives to the detriment of our country’s independence and sovereignty.
