Model United Nations 2009

24 October is United Nations Day. To mark this occasion, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosted a Model UN with 34 students from the University of Timor-Leste’s Peace Centre presenting the Security Council debate of October 1999 which led to the  establishment of the UN Transitional Authority in East Timor (UNTAET). UNMIT supported and trained the students in Timor-Leste’s first ever Model UN. Photo by Martine Perret/UNMIT
