BEIJING – China wants to deepen mutually beneficial cooperation with the Maldives, President Xi Jinping said in a congratulatory message to the newly elected Maldivian president, the leader of an opposition that has vowed to review Chinese projects. China and India are going head-to-head for influence in the Indian Ocean nation, a string of palm-fringed islands and atolls over 500 km (300 miles) southwest of India's southern tip. The Maldives opposition said before the election it will review China's investments in its "Belt and Road" infrastructure initiative, partly out of concern over terms, as experts have warned that the archipelago risks falling into a debt trap. Xi told Ibrahim Mohamed Solih that China and the Maldives share a long-standing friendship, China's official Xinhua News Agency said late Sunday. "China is willing to work with the Maldives to continue to cement their friendship and deepen mutually beneficial cooperation in various fields to better benefit the people of both countries," Xinhua said.
