Maldives President Mohamed Muizzu, on Monday, told the parliament that the island nation will not allow "any country to interfere with or undermine their sovereignty;" recalling his pre-election promises. Addressing the first parliamentary session this year, Muizzu said that Male and New Delhi have agreed that Indian troops will leave the archipelago by May 10. The Maldivian premier made the speech even as two opposition parties boycotted his address amid growing political controversies in the last few weeks.
