EU Presidency statement on the assassination attempts in Timor-Leste

The European Union follows the situation in Timor-Leste with deep concern following the attempts to assassinate the President and the Prime Minister.

The EU Presidency firmly condemns these assassination attempts on Timor-Leste's democratically elected leaders. These attempts only strengthen the EU's firm determination to support Timor-Leste's institutions and its development in order to protect its future.

It is the EU's firm belief that Timor-Leste's people want security, peace and reconciliation. The situation underlines the essential task performed by the United Nations Police and the International Stabilisation Force.
