General Ruak: International Stabilisation Force will withdraw in 2012
"The presence of the ISF in the country has relations with the presence of the United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT) and there is an agreement that the ISF will be withdrawn from the country after the 2012 general election," General Ruak said.
Ruak added that the deployment of the ISF was based on the agreement made by the Timorese Government and therefore its withdrawal should not be based on one or two people's will but should be based on the decision of the Government.
