    Maldives lifts state of emergency, defusing China-India tensions
    Politically turbulent island nation became a regional sea power flashpoint

    YUJI KURONUMA, Nikkei staff writer

    The Maldives became a front in a power struggle between China and India in the Indian Ocean.

    TOKYO -- The Maldives' president has lifted a 45-day-long state of emergency that had raised the threat of maritime clash between China and India over the tiny island nation.

    President Abdulla Yameen ended the state of emergency Thursday "in an effort to promote normalcy," according to a statement from the president's office, "though there still exists a diminished threat to national security."

    Yameen imposed the state of emergency Feb. 5 after the country's Supreme Court ordered the release of jailed opposition lawmakers. The Yameen government nullified the court's decision and had two justices arrested, saying they had conspired to overthrow the government.

    Yameen said the situation posed an imminent threat to national security. On Feb. 20, the original 15-day order declared by presidential decree was extended another 30 days by the Maldives parliament.

    Pressure from India and the U.S. seems partly responsible for bringing the state of emergency to an end. Calling the situation unconstitutional, ex-President Mohamed Nasheed, in exile and facing terrorism-related charges, called on India to send its military and a special envoy to free the political detainees. In response, India beefed up patrols in the Indian Ocean around the island nation.

    According to Indian government sources, China sent several vessels, including missile destroyers, near the Maldives, apparently in response to a Maldivian envoy's visit to Beijing on Feb. 7. Yameen has counted on China for support, including investment, which has proven controversial.

    But around Feb. 22, when these ships were around 30 nautical miles from India's vessels, the Indian Navy threatened action -- firing a warning shot and "war drill" -- if they were to come within 20 nautical miles. The Chinese fleet retreated to the southeast, stopping in waters 276 nautical miles from the Maldivian capital of Male.

    India worked with the U.S. to bring the state of emergency to a swift end. In the event of a clash between China and India, the U.S. Navy is positioned to collaborate with their Indian counterparts by sending ships from Diego Garcia, a British-controlled island south of the Maldives. Australian naval vessels were also stationed around 380 nautical miles from Male in the Indian Ocean, according to sources.

    Australia, India, Japan and the U.S. agreed last November to team up on security under their so-called Indo-Pacific strategy. When February's standoff began, the partners had not even begun discussing the specifics of that framework.

    Diminished prospects for Chinese military support may have led Yameen to scrap the state of emergency. Tensions between China and India over the island nation of 400,000 people look likely to abate for now, though both navies were maintaining the positions of their warships in the Indian Ocean as of March 22.

    And all this time we were given to believe by the #presstitutes and some on these very fora that India chickened out in the face of the Cheeni armada.

    Perhaps GoI really knew what they were doing!!

    "Tensions between China and India over the island nation of 400,000 people look likely to abate for now, though both navies were maintaining the positions of their warships in the Indian Ocean as of March 22."

    That line also makes it clear the situation is evolving and also developing. Its not the end but the beginning of the end for the Maldives current disposition that really needs a total revamp and absorption into the Republic Of India architecture that includes foreign, defense and democratic affairs. The election commission of Maldives is going to have one fun(d) ride in the next few days and the Election Commission of the republic of India is going to call it out - and the best is that is one area where the leaches of Maldives have no clue and experience and if they try to even breach such a area they will have a butterfly effect and its better for them to alienate from such (i.e. Russia is now a Democratic Republic).

    I can cringe all day posting link after link where Indian presstitute talk for China and Pakistan but never for GoI.

    GoI is treated like a LKG student who must answer these bastards for all their imaginary half literate questions in the name of democracy.

    On another thread I kept shouting that GoI is privy to something that we aren't. Any serious watcher can take such clues from omissions and commissions both; to make an opinion.

    But here people just like to quote OpEds and say, 'Where are the Bhakhts' now. Salaon ka apna koi dimag nahi hai.

    Let me post an example from other fora of a Congi asshole who enjoy privileges given by porkies and reports Indian.

    And he is quoting a known India hater, vicious troll in response to an OpEd of low level propaganda titled India’s armed forces - Paper elephant.

    Actually these pests are serious threat. Like Bhima said in Mahabharat about Kaurvas that they are 'Naagfani Ke Beej' ; must be eradicated.

    One must call them out even at personal cost.

    They remained untouched for many decades and were pivotal to carry on Nehruvian thuggery that kept India mediocre and poor.

    Just imagine the kind of mediocrity we suffer today that we have been losing out to every age that rest of the world is passing through since industrial age.

    Atomic Age, Modern Age, World Governance age (P5), Microchip/semiconductor age, Information age, Nano-Particle age, Automation Age, Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Physics ...............the gap is increasing and only thing we are doing is licking Gandhi's ass who are conspiring to divide us on caste.

    Now these dickheads wants to whitewash sins of Congress-i asking 'Modi ne Kya Kiya'.

    Just one example of poor state of MIC when India had advanced industrial capabilities we are losing our hard earn money to foreign sellers. Cryogenic engine development saga of Isro is well documented and how these same people did all the efforts to slow it down.

    Look at the conditions of the Cities as none make it to international standard metropolitan city.

    Few years back their only success was to tease Pakistanis by moaning about indian secularism which Pakistani never gave 2 hoots about. With Modi becoming PM these earthworms have lost even that ground as well and now showing their real 'Aukaat' by belittling India and their own PM to please Pakistanis.

    Seems like the Quad is actually up and running, in spite of naysayers dismissing the concept altogether. Let's see if the Quad expands to include countries like Vietnam, South Korea, Singapore and others. We need to isolate Chinese stooges in the ASEAN - Laos and Cambodia.

    On the other hand, this development is very positive, the fact that we asserted our position on the high seas is revealing, especially since the Chinese foreign ministry explicit stated that they do not want a repeat of Doklam in the Maldives. Phatt gayi saalon ki. They have revealed themselves as typical bullies. All talk and no show; the moment somebody stands up to them, they run away with their tails between their legs.

    Paper elephant, . . . . Ha.ha. . .that is funny. . . He must have got 15* likes from equally chutiya pakistanis for posting this crap. . . . . . . . . OTOH why isn't pakistani fauj and their chini friend taking advantage of the situation! . . . . . Because, they have much better knowledge of our capabilities than the brainless chutiya members of terrorist forum. There are so many members on that forum who claim to be indians but post all anti india things.

    There was always something wrong with these Indians but they didn't let it come out. Thanks to social media they got exposed or couldn't fake it for long.
    .........
    Porki and Chini brain is clocked to same reptilian thought process where they only think about Survival and End Justifies the Means (Credit @Project Dharma) . Their undeserving sense of entitlement comes out from severe inferiority complex that they think world has conspired against them.

    Since rest of the world don't take them seriously, actually humiliates them, they turn hostile to smaller countries and Country like India who came out of the clutches of Imperial powers and struggling.

    Ideally they should have been sympathetic and friendly to us but to look big and to be part of the big league, in case of Pakistan they became their Butler to help them destabilize the region. Porkis actually let foreign powers entre the region to bomb it to smithereens.

    Their contradiction even visible in this very thread tells a lot about their weak psychological construct as in the same breath they call India both Hegemonic and Coward.

    Why would IN accept that it fired warning shots against PLAN in the international waters?

    Officially accepting it makes zero sense. China never officially acknowledge the transgresstions made by them at LAC neither do they ackowledge when IA does the same.

    Lets see how this unfolds.

    Placing this here because it doesn’t matter to some:

    Lord Hanuman was near and perhaps observing the same in the mountains when Lord Bhima his brother encounters on the way to get a particular (garland of?) flowers ... wise Lords

    Bhima challenges and defeats the many thereafter and encounters a plethora of questions. The rules of engagement ... ? Purpose ? The stakeholders ? Chance ? Strength? Righteousness? Goals? And more and more.

    But what is critical Lord Yudhisthira asking the question (observations) ... please tell us why ...

    Maldives ...

    Bhima (and Hanuman) is approaching and many guards and a chosen Maniman (beware) ...

    Once all is done we have to ask the question ... like Lord Yudhisthira...

    Maldives ...

    We must ask the world :

    We are curious to hear about the occasion of such imprecation. We wonder that at that very moment, together with forces and attendants wast not consumed by the ire of ...

    It’s known and correct and accurate that there is auspicious connect with the land of Bharat who makes it say otherwise ?

    We ought to do it to see what the world and others says !! Awaken Bharat

    union and safety of Bharat ... Goa, Kashmir, Pondicherry, Rajasthan ... and ...

    Sikkim and Maldives: in 1988 it was confirmed Maldives is and became a protectorate of Bharat -> now XXXXX

    This is with reference to Sikkim in 1950s when it became a protectorate to later in 1975 (associate state to full state). The people connection and reliance. Fair elections. Transparency. Democracy. And more and more. Truth.

    Riots to be trigger (already with extreme magnitude). A selected Maniman. A highly provocative atmosphere. Mismatch and extremely disrespectful. Strength!! The opportunity to ask the questions (observation).

    People and region must feel the truth and awakening of being with a righteous Bharat.

    Truth.

    Welcome Maldives into Bharat ... a garland of flowers !!

    Jai Hind.
