Indonesia occupies a very special place in the foreign policy of Malaysia. Even before independence, the people of Malaya joined the volunteer team that helped Indonesia's struggle for independence from the Dutch. Therefore Tunku Abdul Rahman, the first Prime Minister of the Federation of Malaya has sent his best friend, Senu Abdul Rahman as the Federation of Malaya’s first ambassador to Indonesia. In 1959, Malaya signed the Treaty of Friendship and Culture with Indonesia with a view to strengthen the relations between the two allied countries. However, Malaysia friendly relations with Indonesia are inconsistent. Personal conflicts and differences of understanding with regard to the question of international relations among the factor relations between the two countries get cool.
