DILI, 09 june 2022 (TATOLI) – Timorese Prime Minister, Taur Matan Ruak expressed his deep appreciation for the statement made publicly by the President of the Republic, Jose Ramos Horta, a day earlier that he will not dissolve the national parliament to worsen the political situation in the country.

“President Horta has always reiterated his idea of having a national dialogue with other State Organs, including the Government, and National Parliament. And We are deeply grateful for such commitment,” Ruak concluded.
