- Our Boundaries
Timor-Leste and Indonesia enjoy a close relationship and have become a global model for reconciliation and constructive friendship. Timor-Leste and Indonesia are neighbours across both land and sea, to the north, west and east.
The leaders of Timor-Leste and Indonesia agreed in August 2015 to renewed and wider discussions, covering both maritime and land boundaries. Timor-Leste commenced talks with Indonesia to permanently delimit maritime boundaries in September 2015. The small fraction of the land boundary that is unsettled will be finalised shortly.
