The Maldives Crisis and the China-India Chess Match

The Maldives Crisis and the China-India Chess Match

The continued political crisis in the Maldives began on February 6, after President Abdulla Yameen ordered the arrest of the chief justice of the Supreme Court of the country along with a former president and declared a state of emergency. The crisis may appear to be an internal power struggle between the Supreme Court and the government of the South Asian island country, but it has wider geopolitical ramifications, and has spiraled into a power struggle between India and China.
