Priorities and Issues


The Maldives has a zero-tolerance policy on terrorism and violent extremism. The Maldives pledged to take swift measures against anyone committing an act or acts of terrorism, or financing, joining, encouraging or providing any manner of assistance or support to, terrorists and violent extremists.

The Maldives is committed to work with the international community to address terrorism in a coordinated and comprehensive manner. Among measures taken to counter terrorism, President Solih, in October 2019, has ratified the Second Amendment to the Anti-Terrorism Act which includes provisions that accentuate political and religious extremism and radicalisation as terrorist acts.

The Maldives also participates in the review process of the Global Counter-terrorism Strategy (GCTS). The General Assembly reviews the Strategy every two years, making it a living document attuned to Member States’ counter-terrorism priorities.
