Maldives Foreign Affairs Minister Abdulla Shahid arrived in India for an official visit on Wednesday morning to address the 6th Joint Commission meeting going to be held in the capital later this week.

Shahid, who is on a five-day visit to the country, will call on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and participate in the India-Maldives 6th Joint Commission Meeting in New Delhi on December 13, the MEA said.

Shahid is also scheduled to call on Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale on December 12 and attend a programme in New Delhi on December 11.
