India will get a fresh update on the situation in Maldives which has witnessed political turmoil for the past couple of months when Maldivian foreign minister Abdul Samad Abdulla meets his Indian counterpart on Monday in New Delhi.

Maldives foreign minister arrives in New Delhi on his first visit abroad and is scheduled to meet external affairs minister SM Krishna for talks on Tuesday, official Spokesperson in the ministry of external affairs Syed Akbaruddin said.

Maldives plunged into political turmoil after 44-year-old Nasheed, the country's first democratically-elected President, resigned on February 7 in what he claims was a coup.

The new regime is headed by Nasheed's former deputy Mohammaed Waheed Hassan.

Nasheed had said that he will visit India in the middle of this month and meet various political leaders.
