Indonesia and East Timor reach agreement on common borders

Jun 30, 2004 02:00 AM

Indonesia and East Timor have reached an agreement on their common borders.
The agreement will be signed on the sidelines of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) ministerial meeting in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta. The agreement is expected to be signed by Indonesian Foreign Minister, Hassan Wiryuda, and his East Timor counterpart, Jose Ramos Horta, who has been invited as a guest to the ASEAN meeting.

East Timor is expecting to be invited to join ASEAN. The border agreement ends a state of confusion, which has existed since East Timor's Independence.
The agreement could also affect Australia's claims to the vast oil and gas deposits which lie under the seafloor between Australia and East Timor.
