EAST TIMOR'S INDEPENDENCE LEADER XANANA GUSMAO SPEAKS IN DILI.
East Timor's reluctant president-in-waiting Xanana Gusmao speaks during
an interview with Reuters at his office in the capital Dili March 20,
2002. Gusmao said on Wednesday he would do his best if voters, as
expected, choose him to lead the world's newest nation next month. The
charismatic former guerrilla leader has procrastinated over the role he
has been widely tipped to win ever since East Timor voted
overwhelmingly to break from Indonesia's often brutal rule in 1999.
