The Maldives has signed an MOU with the UN, agreeing to actively contribute to peacekeeping operations as observers and infantry.
The agreement, signed in New York by the Maldives ambassador to the UN Ahmed Sareer last week, is the first of its kind to be signed by the country.
“This agreement marks a new era in relations between the Maldives and the UN,” said Sareer upon signing the agreement with UN Under Secretary-General Hervé Ladsous.
