Jose Ramos Horta, President-elect on East Timor, the world, and the UN
Nobel Prize winner, Jose Ramos Horta, President-elect of Timor L’Este speaks about his country, the world, and the UN, before he takes office on the 19th.

From 1975 Jose Ramos Horta was an exile fighting for his country’s independence against Indonesia’s annexation. He has unrivaled insight into the practical, and sometimes capricious, application of international law by the global community.

When the Indonesian Army went on the rampage after the independence vote, it was the worst of times and best of times for the UN, when its mission staff almost mutinied and refused orders to abandon the Timorese.

Ian Williams frequently interviewed him during those years, and when he came to the UN as the first Timorese Foreign Minister.
