Formal relations between Singapore and Indonesia began with the establishment of a Singapore Liaison Office in December 1966. The Liaison Office operated with a staff of four Singapore officers. Following the establishment of formal diplomatic relations between Indonesia and both Malaysia and Singapore, S Rajaratnam, then Singapore Foreign Minister wrote to his counterpart, Indonesian Foreign Minister Adam Malik, in September 1967 proposing the exchange of diplomatic representatives between the two countries. At the invitation of the Indonesian Foreign Minister, Mr Rajaratnam subsequently visited Indonesia for bilateral discussions. Both countries agreed to establish formal diplomatic relations at Ambassadorial level from 7 September 1967. Mr Ridzwan Dzafir, who was then the Singapore Liaison Officer in Jakarta, was also appointed Chargé d’Affaires. In 1968, Mr P S Raman was appointed as Singapore’s first Ambassador to Indonesia. The current Ambassador, Mr Ashok Mirpuri, assumed his post in July 2006.
