Both countries established the Malaysia-Singapore Joint Technical Committee MSJTC to implement the ICJ's judgement, which was inter alia, tasked with addressing the delimitation of the maritime boundaries between the territorial waters of both countries.

South Indian culture was spread to Southeast Asia by the south Indian Pallava dynasty in the 4th and 5th century. In ancient Indian literature, the term Suvarnadvipa or the "Golden Peninsula" is used in Ramayanaand some argued that it may be a reference to the Malay Peninsula. The ancient Indian text Vayu Purana also mentioned a place named Malayadvipa where gold mines may be found, and this term has been proposed to mean possibly Sumatra and the Malay Peninsula. He referred to the Straits of Malacca as Sinus Sabaricus.

Between the 7th and the 13th century, much of the Malay peninsula was under the Buddhist Srivijaya empire. The site of Srivijaya's centre is thought be at a river mouth in eastern Sumatrabased near what is now Palembang.
The empire was based around trade, with local kings dhatus or community leaders swearing allegiance to the central lord for mutual profit. Kedah—known as Kedaram, Cheh-Cha according to I-Ching or Kataha, in ancient Pallava or Sanskrit —was in the direct route of the invasions and was ruled by the Cholas from A second invasion was led by Virarajendra Chola of the Chola dynasty who conquered Kedah in the late 11th century.
The coming of the Chola reduced the majesty of Srivijayawhich had exerted influence over KedahPattani and as far as Ligor.
During the reign of Kulothunga Chola I Chola overlordship was established over the Sri Vijaya province kedah in the late 11th century. Pattinapalaia Tamil poem of the 2nd century CE, describes goods from Kedaram heaped in the broad streets of the Chola capital. A 7th-century Indian drama, Kaumudhimahotsva, refers to Kedah as Kataha-nagari.
The Agnipurana also mentions a territory known as Anda-Kataha with one of its boundaries delineated by a peak, which scholars believe is Gunung Jerai. Stories from the Katasaritasagaram describe the elegance of life in Kataha. The Buddhist kingdom of Ligor took control of Kedah shortly after.
Its king Chandrabhanu used it as a base to attack Sri Lanka in the 11th century and ruled the northern parts, an event noted in a stone inscription in Nagapattinum in Tamil Nadu and in the Sri Lankan chronicles, Mahavamsa.
At times, the Khmer kingdom, the Siamese kingdom, and even Cholas kingdom tried to exert control over the smaller Malay states.
History of Malaysia
Wars with the Javanese caused it to request assistance from China, and wars with Indian states are also suspected. In the 11th century, the centre of power shifted to Malayua port possibly located further up the Sumatran coast near the Jambi River. Areas which were converted to Islam early, such as Acehbroke away from Srivijaya's control.
By the late 13th century, the Siamese kings of Sukhothai had brought most of Malaya under their rule. In the 14th century, the Hindu Java-based Majapahit empire came into possession of the peninsula. It is possible that Santubong was an important seaport in Sarawak during the period, but its importance declined during the Yuan dynastyand the port was deserted during the Ming dynasty. The Islam in Malaysia was influenced by previous religions and was originally not orthodox.

There he came under the protection of Temagi, a Malay chief from Patani who was appointed by the king of Siam as regent of Temasek. Within a few days, Parameswara killed Temagi and appointed himself regent.
Some five years later he had to leave Temasek, due to threats from Siam. During this period, a Javanese fleet from Majapahit attacked Temasek. The stone monument is found in Terengganu.
Parameswara headed north to found a new settlement. Finding that the Muar location was not suitable, he continued his journey northwards.
Along the way, he reportedly visited Sening Ujong former name of present-day Sungai Ujong before reaching a fishing village at the mouth of the Bertam River former name of the Melaka Riverand founded what would become the Malacca Sultanate. Over time this developed into modern-day Malacca Town. According to the Malay Annalshere Parameswara saw a mouse deer outwitting a dog resting under a Malacca tree. Taking this as a good omen, he decided to establish a kingdom called Malacca.
He built and improved facilities for trade. The Malacca Sultanate is commonly considered the first independent state in the peninsula. Admiral Zheng He called at Malacca and brought Parameswara with him on his return to China, a recognition of his position as legitimate ruler of Malacca. In exchange for regular tribute, the Chinese emperor offered Melaka protection from the constant threat of a Siamese attack. The Chinese and Indians who settled in the Malay Peninsula before and during this period are the ancestors of today's Baba-Nyonya and Chetti community.
According to one theory, Parameswara became a Muslim when he married a Princess of Pasai and he took the fashionable Persian title "Shah", calling himself Iskandar Shah. He ruled Malacca from to After an initial period paying tribute to the Ayutthaya the kingdom rapidly assumed the place previously held by Srivijaya, establishing independent relations with China, and exploiting its position dominating the Straits to control the China-India maritime trade, which became increasingly important when the Mongol conquests closed the overland route between China and the west.
The extent of the Malaccan Empire in the 15th century became the main point for the spreading of Islam in the Malay Archipelago. Within a few years of its establishment, Malacca officially adopted Islam. Parameswara became a Muslim, and because Malacca was under a Muslim prince, the conversion of Malays to Islam accelerated in the 15th century.
