Abstract

The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) has recognized Timor Leste as its 11th member. ASEAN was formed on August 8, 1967. This organization was formed due to the strong desire of the ASEAN founders to create a peaceful, secure, stable, and prosperous Southeast Asia region. The decision to admit Timor Leste was communicated by a statement letter from ASEAN leaders in the scope of the 40/41 Summit, agreeing: in principle, recognizing Timor Leste as ASEAN's 11th member. Allow Timor-Leste to participate in all ASEAN meetings, including the Summit plenary, as an observer. ASEAN will design a path to prepare Timor Leste for full membership, which will be reported at the 42nd ASEAN Summit in 2023. All ASEAN member nations and other partners must fully support Timor Leste in its efforts to attain full ASEAN membership via capacity-building assistance and other means.
