JAKARTA, Feb. 14 (Xinhua) -- Indonesia and Timor Leste have set up Senior Official Consultation (SOC) mechanism in addressing disputes in areas bordering the two neighboring countries.

The agreement to set up the SOC was resulted from a meeting between Indonesia's Coordinating Minister for Political, Legal and Security Wiranto, Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi and Timor Leste's Strategic Investment and Development Planning Minister Xanana Gusmao here on Monday.

The SOC initial meeting was scheduled on March 10 in Bali, Wiranto said on the sidelines of the meeting.

Senior officials attending the SOC in Bali would be assigned to draft steps aimed at settling the dispute thoroughly, which would eventually be approved by the two respective countries, Wiranto added.

In the same occasion, Retno said that establishment of SOC was the peak of long-time negotiations previously conducted by officials of the two neighboring countries to settle their border disputes.

Retno added that Indonesian delegation in the SOC would be led by Director General for Asia Pacific and Africa affairs at the foreign ministry Desra Percaya, meanwhile Timor Leste delegation would be led by Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister Roberto Soares.

According to Retno, the SOC discussions would constitute representatives of communities inhabiting around the disputed border areas.

Timor Leste, a former Indonesian province, opted to separate from Indonesia through a UN-sponsored referendum in 1999 and declared independence in 2002.



LISBON, Feb. 17 (Xinhua) -- Twice a month, on Sundays, a group of refugees from Syria, Iraq and Eritrea take over a kitchen in Lisbon's Alfama district to give locals a taste of middle-eastern food.

They are part of a program at Lisbon's Cozinha Popular da Mouraria (Popular Kitchen of Mouraria), an association set up by former journalist Adriana Freire around four years ago.

Under the motto "Make Food Not War," the program is aimed at bridging cultural divides and helping them feel more at home.

"I like everything about this project," says Nizar Almadani, from Damascus, Syria, as he cooks a Syrian chicken dish and bakes flatbread."I have good friends here."

Almadani, who was a chef in Damascus and also owned a travel agency, arrived to Portugal eight months ago, after travelling to Turkey and then Greece.

While he likes Portugal and being part of this project, Almadani says he needs to find full-time work and is still waiting to get documents from the authorities. He hasn't seen his wife and two sons, in Lebanon, for two years, and would also like to see her resettled here.

His journey has not been easy, but this could be a good opportunity for him to start from scratch.

The man behind the idea of the project, "Make Food Not War," Alexandre Mascarenhas, explains that it is a way for the refugees to integrate in the community and make connections.

"Our aim is to get people integrated and to experience Portuguese hospitality. I found the phrase (Make Food Not War) on the internet and I thought it had so much to do with this project, with what is happening in countries like Syria," Mascarenhas says.

"The revenue of these events goes to them, but it is important they eventually get a full-time job, and as they get new jobs we get more new people (refugees), and that way the cycle doesn't stop," he adds, as he kneads bread in the kitchen.

"Before the project I didn't know many people," says Awet Mauratu, 35, from Eritrea, who is also kneading bread. He arrived in Lisbon 11 months ago and used to work in the mining industry. "Now I know many people and we are like a family."

Portugal has showed an open attitude towards refugees, with the country offering to resettle up to 10,000 people.

However the number of refugees arriving here has been quite low. Portugal has until today received around 957 refugees under the EU relocation plan, according to recent figures released by the European Commission.

While refugees here face problems in terms of excessive bureaucracy to get residency documents, the Portuguese authorities including the President, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, have insisted that Portugal is welcoming refugees with open arms.

Last week Rebelo de Sousa visited the Cozinha Popular da Mouraria to see the Make Food Not War project with his own eyes, and had lunch there and complimented the chefs.

"He was very nice. I liked him," says Almadani. "He is a very good guy, a good president."
