For the first time of what are expected to be regular rotations, Army advisers were sent to the Maldives to train its growing security forces last February and March. Maldives is a strategic area in the Indian Ocean that has caught the interest of India and the U.S. on one side and China on the other side. The country has roughly 2,500 personnel only across all services, and they are looking forward to expanding their capabilities and continuing to grow. The Army advisers have trained a wide range of troops across the Maldives National Defense Force, including the presidential guard, the marines, and the coast guard.
