President Dr Mohamed Waheed has said that the government is concerned over the growing threat of pirates to the Maldives.
In the meeting held with the Director General of Indian Coast Guard Vice Admiral M.P. Muralidharan at the President’s Office yesterday morning, the President outlined the challenges faced by the Maldives due to piracy in Western Indian Ocean.
Discussions at the meeting were focused on strengthening the mutual cooperation between the Coast Guards of the two countries.

The President also highlighted the need to have a regional strategy to address maritime security threats in the region such as piracy.
