policy of malaysia


Implementing foreign policy is a complex and challenging task. With the dynamic environment of world politics, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs needs to be constantly aware of changes and be able to effectively respond to ensure that Malaysia’s sovereignty and national interests are adequately protected and Malaysia’s views and positions are duly articulated in the international arena.

The Ministry will coordinate and work closely with relevant Ministries and Agencies to establish workable terms of reference in implementing Malaysia’s national interests and to coordinate marketing and branding strategies for Malaysia abroad.

In the formulation of foreign policy, every country has its own objective. In the case of Malaysia, it is as simple as the pursuit of Malaysia’s national interest at the international level.

The Malaysian government will strive to ensure that Malaysia continues to play an active role in international relations for the benefit of the country. Principal emphasis in the pursuit of Malaysia’s foreign policy objectives include:

Maintaining peaceful relations with all countries regardless of its ideology and political system;

Adopting an independent, non-aligned, and principled stance in regional and international diplomatic affairs;

Forging close relations and economic partnerships with all nations, particularly with ASEAN and other regional friends;

Promoting peace and stability in the region through capacity building and conflict resolution measures;

Playing an influential leadership role as Chair of the ASEAN, Non-aligned Movement (NAM) and Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) (As we did in the last few years);

Participating actively and meaningfully in the United Nations, especially in the efforts to end injustice and oppression, and to uphold international law; and

Projecting Malaysia as a leading example of a tolerant and progressive Islamic nation.
