“Ambassador José Amorim is an experienced Diplomat, who served for several years as Timor-Leste’s Ambassador in the Kingdom of Belgium and European Union. Also, with his knowledge of the region, I’m sure he will use his experience in his new post. We all know that the Kingdom of Malaysia has a special importance for Timor-Leste as it is always present when we are in need.
