A group of European Union parliamentarians are due to arrive in the Maldives this month to discuss politics and climate change.
The two day visit on February 20-21 is the first since 2007, the Maldives EU mission said in a statement.
“A series of meetings would also be arranged with key party political leaders and key government ministries,” it said.
Last week, the Ambassador-Designate of the Maldives to Belgium and the European Union, Ali Hussain Didi, spoke at the European Parliament’s Delegation to South Asia.
MEP Ms Jean Lambert, the British Chair of the European Parliament’s Delegation to South Asia, responded by welcoming the Ambassador-Designate to Brussels and hoped for frequent and positive engagement during his posting.
