Diario Nacional, March 4, 2011 language source: Tetun - MP Duarte Nunes from the Committee B for defence and security said Indonesian National Armed Force (TNI) soldiers have illegally entered the country in the area of Naktuka; in the enclave district of Oe-cusse.
Nunes explained that the TNI soldiers entered the border calling on local residents there not to hold any activities in the disputed land area.
Nunes affirmed that he was informed by the Timorese National Police (PNTL) commander saying the TNI soldiers have twice crossed the country's border illegally.
He called on the Government to speed up the process of resolving the border demarcation between Timor-Leste and Indonesia, so that local residents in the area could remain calm.
