East Timor's position today?

I wanted to know more about how the country of east timor is coping today, about ten years after it became a sovereign state. Are there still disputes over independence/annexation? Or is that all over? A website would be nice. Thanks!!

    There is not dispute over independence vs. integration with Indonesia anymore. Even Indonesia and has recognized the independent Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste's (the official name of the country) sovereignty. Timor still has many problems as any country coming out of years of violent occupation would. Indonesia's destructive exit in 1999 added to these.
