Relief to India as Maldives Ocean Deal with China is Scrapped

Maldives agreement with China to build an observatory in Indian Ocean is possibly not on the cards anymore. This agreement between the two countries took place in 2017 when Abdulla Yameen was the Maldivian President. As per the agreement, China was authorized to construct an observatory at Makunudhoo which is in the north. Had it been manifested, it would have been a matter of concern for India since it would allow China to have a significant Indian Ocean shipping route. However, scrapping of the deal after the exit of Yemen from President post is a sigh of relief for India.
