The Mauritian Prime Minister, Pravind Jugnauth meets the Prime Minister of Great Britain, Liz Truss at the UN General Assembly in New York. Both Prime Ministers welcomed recent steps to strengthen the UK-Mauritius relationship, including through the new Security Dialogue and Strategic Trade Partnership. They also agreed on the importance of likeminded democracies working together to uphold freedom around the world.
The leaders had a useful discussion about the future of the British Indian Ocean Territory, covering the ongoing dispute over sovereignty of the Chagos. They also agreed on the importance of likeminded democracies working together to uphold freedom around the world. After their dispute over the Chagos issue, it seems that the tone has changed somewhat.
The article draws from a communiqué of the UK PMO, but as far as Mauritius is concerned, we do not recognise the British Indian Ocean Territory and there cannot be any discussion on that basis.
