Friend Israel Jumps into India Maldives Diplomatic Row : Vows to Boost Tourism in Lakshadweep

As the diplomatic discourse continues, Israel's initiative may serve as a catalyst for fostering positive engagement and cooperation, encouraging a focus on the shared allure of Lakshadweep rather than the current tensions between nations.

New Delhi, January 09, 2024, 9:40 am IST : In the midst of the ongoing diplomatic tension between India and the Maldives, the Israeli embassy in India has taken a unique approach by advocating for the promotion of tourism in Lakshadweep, a picturesque group of islands in the Arabian Sea.

Israeli Embassy’s Support for Lakshadweep Tourism

Last year, at the request of the federal government, Israel actively participated in the initiation of the desalination program in Lakshadweep. The Israeli embassy expressed its readiness to continue working on this project and extended an invitation for others to explore the natural beauty of Lakshadweep.

“We were in #Lakshadweep last year upon the federal government’s request to initiate the desalination program. Israel is ready to commence working on this project tomorrow. For those who are yet to witness the pristine and majestic underwater beauty of #lakshadweepislands, here are a few pictures showing this island’s enchanting allure,” the embassy stated on X.

Accompanying their statement were captivating images showcasing the pristine beaches and vibrant marine life that Lakshadweep has to offer.

Maldivian Envoy Summoned Over Social Media Remarks

Simultaneously, tensions between India and the Maldives escalated, leading to the summoning of the Maldivian envoy to India by the external affairs ministry. The concerns raised were in response to derogatory remarks made on social media by several Maldivian ministers against Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Maldivian Government’s Actions

Following the controversy, the Maldivian government took decisive action by suspending three deputy ministers on Sunday. The suspension came after these officials criticized Prime Minister Modi for his post on X, insinuating that it aimed to position Lakshadweep as an alternative tourist destination to the Maldives.

The Maldivian foreign ministry clarified that the government is aware of such derogatory remarks on social media but emphasized that these personal views do not represent the official stance of the country.

Promoting Tourism Amidst Diplomatic Strife

In a strategic move, Israel’s endorsement of Lakshadweep’s tourism comes as a positive gesture amidst the diplomatic strains between India and the Maldives. This approach not only highlights the enchanting beauty of Lakshadweep but also emphasizes the potential for collaboration in areas such as tourism and environmental initiatives between countries.

As the diplomatic discourse continues, Israel’s initiative may serve as a catalyst for fostering positive engagement and cooperation, encouraging a focus on the shared allure of Lakshadweep rather than the current tensions between nations.
