Timor-Leste is an island state in Southeast Asia covering the territory of the eastern half of Timor Island with a population of about 1.3 million. The main exports of the Timor-Leste  are crude-petroleum, natural gas, coffee, vegetables and scrap iron. Both Sri Lanka and Timor-Leste are members of the ASEAN Regional Forum, a platform in which both countries can develop their bilateral relations.

The establishment of diplomatic relations between Sri Lanka and Timor-Leste would enhance the existing friendly relations and cooperation between both countries in the political, socio-economic and cultural fields for the mutual benefit of the two countries.
