Your Excellency Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao and the delegation,

Welcome to Jakarta, and congratulations on the inauguration of Your Excellency. Indonesia and Timor Leste are brothers, so our partnership must be more strengthened.

Your Excellency,

I would like to discuss three issues. First, regarding Timor Leste’s membership in ASEAN, Indonesia always lends support to it, and application of Timor Leste’s membership and the implementation of the membership roadmap, including through capacity building of Timor Leste’s officials.

Before we begin the discussion, I would like to give the floor to Mr. Prime Minister to deliver a remarks.
