Occupation Of East Timor

EDM number 201 in 1990-91, proposed by Ann Clwyd on 10/12/1990.

That this House notes that 15 years ago Indonesia invaded East Timor, killing a third of the population, and occupying the country; draws attention to the parallel with the Iraqi occupation of Kuwait; believes that the same principles of not letting an aggressor remain in possession of territory annexed in defiance of international law and the United Nations Charter should apply; emphasises that the principle of self-determination must govern any settlement of East Timor; and calls on the Government to make it clear that the people of East Timor have the same right to determine their political future as the people of Kuwait.

This motion has been signed by a total of 45 MPs.
