    OFFICIAL PRESENTATION OF THE FLAG OF TIMOR-LESTE

    Mr José Antonio Amorim Dias, the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste’s Ambassador and Permanent Delegate to UNESCO, officially presented the country’s flag to the Organization on 4 October. The ceremony took place during the Plenary of the 32nd session of the General Conference.


    timor.jpg Welcoming Tomor-Leste, the Director-General, Mr Koïchiro Matsuura, expressed his satisfaction at the country’s adhesion, which he saw as “contributing to the universal character of the Organization and witnessing to the profound attachment of this young democracy to the ideals of UNESCO”. He went on to say, “[that] this entry into the international community, by a country that has been able to overcome its internal crises and attain reconciliation, brings with it many lessons and much hope”. Mr Matsuura reaffirmed, as he had done during the visit of President Kay Rala Xanana Gusamão to UNESCO last June, “the availability of UNESCO to continue the fruitful and confident co-operation, in its field of competence, that had developed with Timor-Leste”.

    On 5 June this year, Timor-Leste became the 189th Member State of UNESCO, the United States of America taking the 190th position after its return.
