Definición de East Timor en inglés:

A country occupying the eastern part of the island of Timor in the southern Malay Archipelago; population 1,131,600 (est. 2009); capital, Dili; languages, Portuguese, Indonesian, English, and indigenous languages. Official name Timor Leste.

Formerly a Portuguese colony, the region declared itself independent in 1975. In 1976 it was invaded by Indonesia, which annexed and claimed it as the 27th state of Indonesia, a claim which was never recognized by the United Nations. The region became the scene of bitter fighting and of alleged mass killings by the Indonesian government and military forces. East Timor gained full independence following a referendum in 1999 and a formal declaration by the United Nations in 2002
