East Timor strengthens ties with Melanesia

East Timor’s foreign minister says his country is keen to work closely with Melanesian countries, reports Radio Australia.

Zacarias da Costa and East Timor Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao are visiting Vanuatu this week.

‘We have a lot in common with the Pacific region – culturally in terms of linguistically, but also in terms of wants and ties of friendship,’ da Costa says. East Timor was granted observer status at the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG) this year.
