Dear Guest, 

Welcome to the website of the Permanent Mission of Timor-Leste to the United Nations.

You will find useful information about the Mission's work before the United Nations and general information about Timor-Leste.

At the United Nations, our priority areas are following the work of the Security Council, the Peacebuilding Commission and strenghtening or building friendships. I am pleased to announce that for the first time, Timor-Leste has put forth its candidature to run for an inter-governmental body, namely, the Human Rights Council for the term 2008-2011.

You can learn more about Timor-Leste's candidacy here on this website.

If you require additional information about any aspect of our work, please do not hesitate to contact me or my staff.

We hope you visit our site often.

In friendship,

Nelson Santos
Permanent Representative to the United Nations
