DILI, Timor-Leste, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- Timor-Leste's President Jose Ramos Horta said that the United Nations Police will hand over responsibility for security to the Timorese National Police ( PNTL) in the next three months, Diario Nacional reported on Monday.

President Horta made the comments following the State Security Council Meeting to decide the process of handing over responsibility for security from the UN Police to PNTL.

"During the meeting, we talked about the process of handing over responsibility for security from the UN to PNTL in the next two or three months. They will hand it over to the Dili District Police.

This is what we discussed in the meeting in order to look forward to strengthening and promoting peace in 2011," Horta said.

President Horta added that many foreigners who are investing in the country have not brought positive things to Timor-Leste such as those running bars that have the potential to create conflicts.
