The Maldives Reform Movement (MRM) has released a statement calling for a stop to be put to “irresponsible” actions motivated by “political greed” that “roused hatred” against foreign countries and could strain the Maldives’ relations with them.
In a statement released yesterday, to mark National Unity Day, the MRM stated that one lesson to be learned from the Asian Tsunami of 2004 was the importance of putting aside political and ideological differences and of the government working together with the people.
The MRM also noted that the Tsunami crisis was one of many times when the importance of maintaining good ties with other nations was apparent and clear. Therefore, the MRM called on the Maldivian people to put a stop to “irresponsible” actions motivated by “political greed” that “roused hatred” against foreign countries and could strain the Maldives’ relations with them.
The MRM had released this statement on the heels of other statements that had been released by other parties in the ruling Coalition; the Adhaalath Party and the Jumhooree Party; condemning the “India Out”/“Indian Military Out” movement that had been adopted by the opposition.
The Adhaalath Party had described the “India Out” movement as “irresponsible”, and the Jumhooree Party had characterised it as harmful for citizens of both nations.
