The President of the Republic of Timor-Leste and Nobel Peace Laureate J. Ramos-Horta warmly received Senator and President of the Thailand Timor-Leste Parliamentary Friendship Group, Hon. General Boonsrang Niumpradit with the delegations, at the Nicolau Lobato Presidential Palace.

This visit holds special significance as General Niumpradit served as Commander of UNTAET from 2000-2001, playing a crucial role in our nation’s early days of independence. His return symbolizes the enduring friendship between our countries.

The delegation’s visit aims to fortify legislative bonds between Timor-Leste and Thailand, fostering cooperation and mutual understanding.

Following productive discussions, President Ramos-Horta hosted an evening cocktail at the Living Memory Gallery. This gathering brought together parliamentary members, government officials, donors, and distinguished guests, providing an opportunity for further dialogue and relationship-building.

As we continue to strengthen our international partnerships, we’re grateful for Thailand’s ongoing support and look forward to a future of enhanced collaboration.
