Security discussions held with Timor-Leste

The Seahawk, a highly capable maritime surveillance platform, recently took part in a rescue operation in Victoria."

Security talks have recently been held in Canberra between the Australian Minister for Defence David Johnston, and the Timor-Leste Secretary of State for Defence, Dr Júlio Tomás Pinto.

A focal point of discussions was ongoing maritime security and regional stability for the two nations, as well as bilateral defence activities including the Defence Cooperation Program currently underway.

"Australia and Timor-Leste share a close and cooperative defence relationship and, as close neighbours, both countries are committed to supporting regional stability," Senator Johnston said.

It's becoming increasingly important to cooperate in the region, especially with the ongoing issues between countries further north in the South China Sea. Presently, countries such as Vietnam are in the midst of territorial disputes over China's land claims.

Countries such as Australia and Timor-Leste are constantly working toward regional stability, hoping to avoid similar conflicts.

"The security situation in Timor-Leste has remained calm and stable over the past few years, and Australia acknowledges the efforts of the Government and the people of Timor-Leste in achieving these conditions," Mr Johnston explained.

He went on to outline how he was happy with Timor-Leste's efforts to expand maritime capability, and boost their role in ongoing regional security. Senator Johnston noted in particular their involvement in the Indian Ocean Naval Symposium.

Cooperation between the two countries is assured over the next few years, especially due to their close proximity. In addition to discussions held on a regular basis, joint military exercises are also likely.
