SRSG's message on the occasion of Easter
Dili,8 April 2009 - The Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (SRSG) Atul Khare today issued the following message on the occasion of Easter:
I extend my warmest wishes to all in Timor-Leste on this special occasion, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
As Timor-Leste moves forward towards a better future for all its citizens, I appeal to everyone to work together and to redouble our efforts to ensure such a future. It is also a time to remember in both our thoughts and in our actions all those who have suffered, and those who have put the past behind them and look forward to the future.
May we take this time to reflect upon how we can work together to promote reconciliation and trust, and to build a peaceful, stable, law-abiding and democratic society in Timor-Leste.
My warmest wishes for peace - peace in your hearts, peace in your families and peace among all the people of Timor-Leste and my sincere thanks for the gracious manner in which you receive me and my colleagues amongst you.
