Jailed resistance leader calls for US pressure

Radio Renascenca, 8 December 98

Xanana Gusmao has sent a message to the US government. He calls on Washington to press Jakarta to comply with the commitments undertaken. Xanana stresses one of these commitments: the effective reduction in the Indonesian military presence in Timor. The message has not yet arrived in the USA. It is being taken by Fernando Araujo, secretary-general of the Timorese Students' National Resistance.

[Araujo] The message is for the American government. Xanana wants to appeal to the USA, that it is time to exert pressure on Indonesia to respect the resolutions regarding East Timor, which Indonesia has violated.
