The Maldivian Democratic Party (MDP) would like to extend its deepest congratulations and best wishes to the people and the Government of India on the occasion of the 69th Independence Day of India.
Today is a day for all Indians to celebrate its rich history and a day to celebrate the very bright future that lies ahead for the great nation.
While we renew our celebration of good relations, today is much more than a celebration of Indian independence by the people of India. Today is a day celebrated by us all in the region and we all rejoice in India’s role as the largest democracy in the world.
India continues to be our closest partner in development, and the Maldivian Democratic Party expresses our most sincere gratitude for India’s relentless engagement with us in trade, development and especially in strengthening and safeguarding democracy in the Maldives.
The Maldivian Democratic Party reiterates its stance that India must remain the guardian of the Indian Ocean region; a position that is welcomed by this party.
As the people of India celebrate this auspicious day, we would like to wish them a bright future guaranteed with stability, security and prosperity.
