A report on China’s relations with East Timor, by Loro Horta, has been published by the French institute IRASEC
as Discussion Paper no. 4 (May 2009). It seems to be a standard “realist” IR kind of text, about foreign policy influence. What makes it interesting is the biography of the author:
Loro Horta is a graduate of Peoples Liberation Army National Defense University (PLANDU). Previous to his Chinese education he was educated in Australia, the United States and Singapore. His […writings] on the Chinese military and other China related topics have been published by the Military Review, Australian Army Journal, Strategic Analysis the Center for Strategic and International Studies, Washington D.C, and Yale Magazine.
