Maldives-Japan Relations

Diplomatic relations between the Maldives and Japan was established in 1967. Over the past 40 years, relations of friendship and mutual cooperation between the two countries have grown from strength to strength. Japan is now the biggest bilateral donor of the Maldives.

From environmental protection to human resources development, sustainable fisheries to the introduction of modern day communications and humanitarian and reconstruction assistance in the aftermath of the tsunami, Japanese assistance have now virtually reached all corners of the Maldivian archipelago.

The two countries have also been cooperating and working closely in the international fora on important international issues as wide-ranging as international peace and security, protection of the global environment and promotion and protection of human rights throughout the world. The Maldives have publicly announced its full support for Japan’s bid to become a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council.

The Government of the Maldives believes that the opening of the Embassy of the Maldives in Tokyo would help elevate the most cordial bilateral relations that the two countries enjoy today to new heights of mutual respect, friendship and cooperation.
