PRIME MINISTER

 

MEETING WITH PRESIDENT HABIBIE

 

As I announced yesterday, I will be travelling to Indonesia for discussions with President Habibie, accompanied by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Alexander Downer, and the Minister for Defence, John Moor e.

 

President Habibie and I have now agreed that the talks will take place on 27 April in Bali.

 

As Prime Minister of a country which is a good and close friend of Indonesia, I very much look forward to meeting President Habibie next week to continue our useful and constructive discussion on ways to bring an end to the terrible violence that has occurred in East Timor.

 

20 April 1999
