Timor-Leste

TIMOR-LESTE :


officially the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste is a country in Southeast Asia.  The country's size is about 15,410 km2 (5,400 sq mi). East Timor was colonised by Portugal in the 16th century. In late 1975, East Timor declared its independence but later that year was invaded and occupied by Indonesia. In 1999, following the United Nations-sponsored act of self-determination, Indonesia relinquished control of the territory, and East Timor became the first new sovereign state of the 21st century on May 20, 2002. After independence, East Timor became a member of the United Nations and the Community of Portuguese Language Countries.
