Maldives: Trying to work out a settlement for Nasheed to leave embassy, say Indian officials

New Delhi: India has been forced into a balancing act when it comes to former Maldives president Mohammed Nasheed, who is still at the Indian High Commission in Male. Indian officials have admitted to CNN-IBN that they are trying to work out a settlement by which Nasheed can leave the Indian High Commission.

India has reached out to the Maldives government and assured that it is not trying to interfere with their domestic affairs. The Maldives administration had earlier objected to India's call for inclusive elections.

Meanwhile, Nasheed is expected to remain at the Indian High Commission for the third night today. He faces an arrest warrant for failure to appear in a local court.
