In the early 16th and 17th centuries, the Portuguese and Dutch colonialists invaded the island of Timor five times. The Portuguese and Dutch signed a treaty in 1859, so East Timor and the provisions of the European She Seogui Portugal became part of the Dutch East Indies (now Indonesia). Japan occupied East Timor in 1942. Afte "World War II" and the restoration of Portugal's colonial rule in East Timor, the Portuguese listed it as "overseas provinces" in 1951. In 1960, The Fifteenth Session of the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted resolution No. 1542, declared the island of East Timor and its subsidiary to be "non-Self-Governing Territories." This was the scope of decolonization. In 1974, the new Portuguese government allowed autonomy for East Timor. In 1975, Indonesia took over East Timor. In October 1999, a referendum was held in East Timor. Indonesia recognized the results, allowing East Timor to separate from Indonesia. On May 20, 2002, the Democratic Republic of East Timor declared its independence.
