BAUCAU, 04 august 2023 ( TATOLI) – U.S. Embassy Chargé d’Affaires Tom Daley alongside F-FDTL Interim Chief of Staff Colonel Jose da Costa Soares, Land Component Commander Colonel Domingos da Costa Soares, and local officials celebrated the conclusion of the two-week long third Dalan ba Dame exercise in Baucau.

During the Dalan ba Dame exercise, members of the armed forces of the United States and Timor-Leste developed relationships and sharpened their skills in medical care, land navigation, small unit tactics, and engineering.

The U.S. Navy Seabees, U.S. Army Engineers, and F-FDTL Engineers collaborated on construction activities for the first time. Their joint efforts focused on restoring a medical clinic and other projects that exemplify the ongoing cooperation between both nations.

“This year’s exercise featured many pioneering events such as the first time U.S. Navy Seabees and U.S. Army Engineers worked jointly with F-FDTL Engineers to repair the base medical clinic, first time F-FDTL and U.S. battalion staff integrated focusing on operations, logistics, and medical, first time a U.S. Air Force Roman Catholic Chaplain conducted religious services and engaged with Timorese religious leaders, and the first time the Rhode Island National Guard participation,”

“The United States is committed to our partnership with Timor-Leste. This year, we held the CARAT exercise, the SPP Signing, and Cessna Delivery; while opportunities keep arising, we intend to keep delivering,” said Chargé d’Affaires Tom Daley.

As the third Dalan ba Dame exercise in Baucau concludes, the collective achievements and shared successes will build the capacity of both forces and create more opportunities for future collaboration to ensure a Free and Open Indo-Pacific. The United States is proud to partner with Timor-Leste while underpinning its commitment to supporting the nation’s sovereignty, security, and prosperity.
