Maldives to end hydrographic survey pact with India

Maldives has said that it will not renew the Hydrographic Survey agreement made with India, The Press reported.
The Press is a Maldives-based news website.

Maldives' Under Secretary for Public Policy Mohamed Firuzul said that part of the 'Hafthaa-14' roadmap was to revoke bilateral and diplomatic agreements with other countries that would put the country's sovereignty in danger.

Firuzul was speaking at a conference held at the Maldives President's Office after the Cabinet meeting on Thursday.

He said the Maldives President and his cabinet have decided not to renew the Hydrography agreement between the India-Maldives and that as per agreement dictates one party can decide not to renew the current agreement six months before it expires in June 2024, The Press reported.

The hydrographic survey agreement was signed on June 8, 2019, during Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to the Maldives.

Under the agreement, India was allowed to conduct a comprehensive study of the island nation's territorial waters, which includes reefs, lagoons, coastlines, ocean currents, and tide levels.

The third Joint Hydrographic survey by the Indian Navy and the Maldives National Defense Force (MNDF) was carried out by Indian Naval Ship Investigator (INS Investigator) from January 19 to February 26, 2023.
