Maldives concerned over piracy reports

Foreign Minister Dr. Ahmed Shaheed has expressed concern over media reports of piracy activities in the Maldives territorial waters.

The Minister’s comment follows Indian media reports that pirates had been active in the Maldivian seas, Miadhu reported.

Dr. Ahmed Shaheed has said that the Maldives government is closely monitoring the developments off the coast of Somalia, which had hijacked many Indian vessels and 100 Indian nationals last week.

The Maldives prefers to work closely with its strategic partners and neighbours to deal with the imminent threat to Maldives, Dr. Shaheed was quoted as saying.
