03 NOV 98 - 09:29 East Timor/Austria: Timorese National Resistance Council rejects more intra-Timorese meetings in present form

Krumbach, Nov. 3 (Lusa) - The Timorese National Resistance Council said in Krumbach on Monday it would not participate in any more intra-Timorese dialogue meetings in their present form.

''This a complete force [sic],'' Jose Ramos Horta said about the present form of the intra-Timorese dialogue meetings. He accused some of the current meeting's 42 participants of being ''Indonesian officials'' who were boycotting the meeting through ''sterile conversations.'' Ramos Horta also said he would not sign any final document of the fourth meeting, which is scheduled to end on Tuesday. ''I am flexible, but not to the point of debasing the people of East Timor,'' Ramos Horta said.

Ramos Horta also said future ''reconciliation meetings'' should held in East Timor, involving ''all Timorese.''-Lusa nnnn
