It is a great pleasure to congratulate the people of Timor-Leste on the 20th anniversary of the restoration of independence.
On behalf of the UN Country Team, I offer the warmest wishes on this momentous occasion.
Today’s anniversary marks another landmark in the productive and exemplary partnership between Timor-Leste and the United Nations. For more than two decades, the United Nations has worked side-by-side with the people of Timor-Leste, supporting the country’s efforts to build a strong and resilient State and promote sustainable peace and prosperity.
