Belek Airport in the Maldive has been transferring flights from the United States to Malaysia since last month.
The airport is now operating on a completely different schedule than normal.
The US has stopped the transfer of air traffic to Malaysia.
The transfer of flights is a routine procedure when flights from US airports are delayed.
But this time, the US has not announced its decision.
Instead, US Secretary of State John Kerry said, “I think that it’s important for us to be clear that it is not the intention of the US government to make any change in our bilateral arrangements, which are working well.”
The transfer was announced on February 12.
But it was announced a day after the US temporarily stopped the transfers from other international carriers.
Kerry said the US would not change its policies on transfers to the Maldivian government.
“Our policy is to make sure that the transfer is not impacted by any changes in the political situation in the United Kingdom,” he said.
Kerry has been the chief spokesman for US-Malaysian relations since President Donald Trump took office in January.
In May, the Maldi government announced a plan to merge with Singapore Airlines and set up a state airline, which was subsequently canceled by the US.
The Maldives also announced plans to become a member of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free trade deal between the United Nations and 12 Pacific Rim nations.
But in December, Trump revoked the Maldis’ membership and the US was forced to negotiate with the Maldia government, which is led by the current President Mohamed Nasheed.
The Trans-Maldives government is currently negotiating with the United Arab Emirates (UAE), the United Republic of Tanzania (UAT), the Republic of the Congo (RCD) and others to join the TPP.
The United States has been actively negotiating with these countries since the start of the year.
Trump has also refused to lift the sanctions on the Maldian government, but he has also been actively working with the UAE, which has blocked Maldivians from entering the US and has accused Maldives of harboring terrorists.
“In recent days, US officials have said that they are prepared to lift sanctions on Iran, but have refused to release the Iranian nationals detained in US custody,” said John C. Mearsheimer, a US scholar at the Brookings Institution.
“This has raised concerns that the US is attempting to avoid the release of Iranian nationals held in the US who are still under US control.”
The Maldivi government says that it will continue to hold the Iranian citizens, but will continue negotiations with the US until they release them.
According to the US State Department, the United State has no plans to lift economic sanctions against Iran.
