east timor government

#TBT: 01 March 2000

#UN peacekeepers from our past mission in East Timor (UNTAET) conduct a daily patrol in the town of Dili to provide security for civilians and maintain law and order. 

UNTAET was established in 1999 and had overall responsibility for the administration of East Timor and was mandated to exercise all legislative and executive authority during the transition period and support capacity-building for self-government. East Timor became an independent country on 20 May 2002.
