Washington, 05 Aug (Lusa) -
Twenty six non-governmental organisation have appealed for the inclusion of East Timorese resistance leaders in the talks between the foreign ministers of Portugal and Indonesia under the auspices of the United Nations, which began in New York on Tuesday. The demand is contained in a letter sent by the International Federation of East Timor to Portuguese Foreign Minister Jaime Gama, his Indonesian counterpart Ali Alatas and UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan earlier this week. The letter states that it would be unacceptable to the East Timorese resistance movement to "accept a solution that has been reached only by others". The International Federation of East Timor comprises 26 organisation in 17 countries.
