External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar has congratulated Maldives’ Foreign Minister Abdulla Shahid for his election as President for 76th UN General Assembly. “This is a testimony as much to his own stature as to the standing of Maldives. We look forward to working with him to strengthen multilateralism and its much needed reforms,” tweeted Jaishankar. India had announced support for Shahid during Foreign Secretary Harsh Shringla’s Maldives visit in November 2020. Shahid beat former Afghan Foreign Minister Zalmai Rassoul 143 votes to 48.
