01 MAR 99 - 08:45 East Timor: RENETIL says reconciliation is its prime political objective

Jakarta, Mar 01 (Lusa) - The National Resistance of East Timorese Students (RENETIL) said in Jakarta last week that reconciliation was its prime political objective. A spokesman for RENETIL made the announcement at the end of the organisation's first open congress in Jakarta on Saturday. Fernando Araujo said that reconciliation among East Timor's various political forces was the most important aspect of his homeland's future political development. Araujo was re-elected secretary-general of RENETIL during the congress that was attended by 65 delegates. The organisation says it has more than 1,700 members.-Lusa nnnn
