On U.S. Intent to Open an Embassy in Maldives

I am pleased to announce that the United States intends to open an Embassy in the Maldives with a resident U.S. Ambassador, reflecting the continued growth of the U.S.-Maldives relationship and underscoring the United States’ unshakeable commitment to the Maldives and the Indo-Pacific region. In the decades since the United States and the Maldives first established diplomatic ties in 1966, our countries have expanded cooperation on issues ranging from strengthening maritime security in the Indo-Pacific to incentivizing the private sector and countering terrorism. With support from the United States, Maldives has made tremendous progress in recent years to support democratic institutions and foster a free and open society for the benefit of all its citizens.

Our decision to open an Embassy in the Maldives is a welcome milestone in our relationship and we look forward to strengthened cooperation between our countries in the years to come.
