Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1824 – Malaysia and Indonesia

The Anglo-Dutch Treaty of 1824, also known as the Treaty of London, was a treaty signed between the United Kingdom and the Netherlands in London on 17 March 1824. It was designed to solve many of the issues that had arisen due to the British occupation of Dutch properties during the Napoleonic Wars.

The Anglo–Dutch Treaty of 1824 officially divided the Malay archipelago into two; Malaya, which was ruled by the United Kingdom, and the Dutch East Indies, which was ruled by the Netherlands. The successor states of Malaya and Dutch East Indies are Malaysia and Indonesia, respectively.
