Abstract

This paper studies Malaysia's Foreign Policy on the Bosnia-Herzegovina war with Serbia in 1992 until 1995. This research was based on the analysis of the primary sources such as documents from Malaysia's Parliamentary debates, Malaysian newspapers and documents from the Public Records Office, London (PRO). Besides that, secondary sources were also referred. This article finds that the failure of the Western's and United States' policies in efficiently stopping the war in Serb-Bosnia War was the prominent factor that had caused Malaysia to play a vital role in the Bosnia Herzegovina crisis. The West's double standard and the practice of favouritism have been well-defined and showcased by America and the UN in solving the Bosnian issue that had ignited the Malaysian spirit to stand up and seek justice for Bosnians and to question the world body's credibility as a peacemaking agency. Malaysia's seriousness and deep concerned over the conflict had prompted other OIC countries to take up the issue to solve the problem in Bosnia. Malaysia, though not as great as America and any other Western countries, had given her contributions in distinctive ways. One of the significant ways was to deploy a peace keeping force in Bosnia under the UN umbrella. Her role in OIC had portrayed her staunch support and consistency in championing the fate of the Muslim community in Bosnian who needed realistic defence.
