Maldives' political situation update.

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-maldives-politics/maldives-embattled-president-sends-envoys-to-china-saudi-for-support-idUSKBN1FS1B7

The Maldives sent envoys to China, Pakistan and Saudi for its support of the government's stance on the court ruling.  However, India was excluded from the list of the friendly nations.

The current Maldives president has had enough of India's intervention in its national policies and wanted to foster a better Maldives-China relationship.  Furthermore, the Maldives wants to get involved in the OBR initiatives for its own economic benefits.  The current Maldives president has realized that India only wants to control the Maldives without the intention to develop its economy whereas China is sincere in helping the Maldives to develop infrastructures and economy.

Thus, India and China are vying for political influences in the Maldives now.
