East Timor eyes ‘strong business ties’ with Burma

East Timor is a tiny country in Southeast Asia bordering Indonesia on the west. I would assume that there are people who haven't heard of its capital Dili, or even Timor Leste itself for that matter. In fact the country became a sovereign state on May 20,2002 only after decades of war and bloodshed.

Just like a new kid on the block, East Timor President Jose Ramos-Horta would like to strengthen its relations to its neighboring countries. He had a meeting with Burma's foreign minister but it drew protest because of the country's violation of human rights. One such violation is National League for Democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi's 20 year detention, just because she stood in the election. Come on, gimme a break!

Everyone wants peace! I don't think anybody here wants to be violated...
