Settling maritime boundary with neighbor Timor Leste

Opinion and Editorial in the Jakarta Post – August 03, 2006

I Made Andi Arsana, Yogyakarta

The violence, which killed a significant number of people, made news headlines across the world. Then, last month, Mari Alkatiri stepped down as prime minister and was replaced with Jose Ramos Horta. This was very big news from the world’s youngest nation.

This article, however, looks more at the relationship between Indonesia and East Timor after the riots. In particular, issues concerning maritime boundaries between the two states, which had not been negotiated at the time of writing.
