East Timor 'will follow report findings'
by ABC Online
East Timor's Government is prepared to accept the final report into the militia violence that occurred during 1999's independence vote.
East Timor President Jose Ramos-Horta and Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao will travel to Bali on Tuesday to meet with Indonesia's President Indonesia, Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, and officially receive the Commission of Truth and Friendship (CTF) report.
The commission calls for an apology from both countries for the gross human rights violations committed in 1999.
East Timor's Foreign Minister, Zacarias Da Costa, told Radio Australia while he has not fully read the report, if it recommends an apology be
made, the government will try to ensure it happens.
"If the report says so, definitely the government has to implement it," he said.
"I cannot say whether we are going to do it tomorrow or the next day or the following day but certainly we will look at all the recommendations and we will try to fully implement."
Indonesia's Foreign Minister has said his country will accept the report's findings.
