Un Timor-Leste independiente planteaba un dilema para la política exterior australiana. Por un lado, Australia lideró la coalición militar multinacional que restableció la paz en 1999 y tenía un interés evidente en garantizar que su vecino más reciente fuera autosuficiente y estable. Por otro lado, la independencia negaba tres décadas de esfuerzos diplomáticos australianos para controlar los recursos de petróleo y gas del mar de Timor. En consecuencia, Australia aceptó la independencia formal de Timor-Leste, pero trató de influir en aspectos clave de su política interior y exterior mediante la ayuda externa, el espionaje y otros instrumentos de la diplomacia.
