(1) notes that in East Timor between December 1941 and January 1943, 700 Australian troops engaged some 20,000 Japanese troops through guerrilla warfare, and:

(a) this severely hampered the Japanese war effort by preventing its troops from being deployed elsewhere; and;

(b) in this endeavour, Australian troops were assisted by the East Timorese people;

(2) recognises that while Australian troops were in East Timor between December 1941 and January 1943, and after they had left, some 40,000 East Timorese are estimated to have died as a result of protecting Australian soldiers; and

(3) commends and thanks the people of Timor-Leste for the sacrifices they made in supporting Australia during World War II.
