(SBU) On March 6, Ambassador met with Timor-Leste Foreign
Minister Zacarias Albano da Costa and urged his government to
quickly recognize the Republic of Kosovo. The Foreign Minister
replied that the government of Timor-Leste had decided to
recognize the Republic of Kosovo. It has not been decided,
however, when Timor-Leste will announce its recognition of
Kosovo. The Foreign Minister promised to let us know when the
decision will be made public.
