Question: Are any State Department officials meeting with former President of Maldives Mohamed Nasheed while he is in the United States?
Answer: Under Secretary for Political Affairs Wendy R. Sherman and other State Department officials will meet with Mr. Nasheed tomorrow at the State Department.
The United States enjoyed excellent relations with Mr. Nasheed and his administration, and we particularly appreciate Mr. Nasheed’s strong leadership on climate change and international human rights issues.
The United States continues to call for restraint by all sides to prevent possible violence, to allow parliament to operate unhindered, and to use Maldivian democratic institutions to resolve differences peacefully.
