Summary/Abstract: New situation in Yugoslav foreign policy and orientation towards the “Third world” countries led to Yugoslav – Indonesian rapprochement. In that way, during 50`s perspectives of Yugoslav cooperation with Indonesia have opened. In the beginning, Yugoslavia used to collect information from different sources (press, diplomatic reports, etc) realizing “complexity” of Indonesian – Dutch relations. Yugoslavia recognized Indonesia soon after the proclamation of independence. Diplomatic missions have been established in 1955 and in following year they were upgraded to the level of embassies. Political contacts opened possibilities for economical, cultural and other kinds of cooperation. Meetings of two head of states, Tito and Sukarno, have contributed in large extent to expansion of bilateral cooperation.
