Diplomatic Conditions and Efforts for Rapprochement

Part of the St Antony’s Series book series


The first postwar diplomatic issue which Malaya faced in relation to Japan was centred on reparations, as was the case in other South-East Asian countries. However, what made Malaya take a different course on the issue from most of her neighbours was her dependent position under British control, namely, Malayan Union and the Federation of Malaya under British protection, and Singapore as a Crown Colony. All the claims and decisions on compensation for the sufferings of the Malayan people under the Japanese had to be made through the British authorities. The ultimate power of decision rested with HMG in London.
