Agree as follows:

1. A secure environment devoid ofviolence or other ibnns o f intimidation is a prerequisite for tho holding o f s fire and lair ballot in East Umor. Responsibility to ensure such an environment as well as for the general mafatemmM o f law and order rests with die appropriate Indonesian security authorities. The absolute neutrality o f the TNI (Indonesian Aimed Forces) and (he Indonesian Police is essential in this regard.

2. The Commission on Peace and Stability established in Dili on 21 April 1999 should become operational without delay. The Commission, in cooperation with the United Nations, w ill elaborate a code o f conduct, by which all parties should abide, for the period prior to and following the consultation, ensure the laying down o f arms and take the necessary steps to achieve disarmament

3. Prior to the start o f the registration, the Seoetaty-Genenl shall ascertain, baaed on the objective evaluation o f the UN mission, that the necessary security situation exists for the peaceful implementation of the consultation process.

4. The police will be solely responsible for the maintenance o f law and order. The Secretary-General, after obtaining the necessary mandate, will make available a number o f civilian police officers to act as advisers to the Indonesian Police in the discharge o f their duties and, at the time o f the consultation, to supervise the escort of ballot papers and boxes to and from (he polling sites.
