Yesterday's meeting was also about the matter of expediting the completion of the Bilateral Investment Treaty (BIT) and a memorandum of understanding in the field of communication and informatics. 

The two top diplomats agreed that efforts would be driven to finalize the agreements this year so that they could be signed during the visit of the Prime Minister of Timor Leste, which will be determined later.

Regarding the land border issues, Retno and Adaljiza agreed to push for efforts to settle discussions on two segments of the land border between Indonesia and Timor Leste, namely Bidjael Sunan-Oben and Noel Besi-Citrana.
