The United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (East Timor) ( UNMIT ) was established in 2006 with its mandates to maintain and improve peace and security, and to support presidential and parliamentary electoral process. Japan dispatched civilian police officers between March 2007 and February 2008, and election observers between March and July 2007. From September 2010 to September 2012, Japan further dispatched two military liaison officers in response to the request from the United Nations.
