    Background: A 13-member advance party form the people's Republic of China arrived in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday evening (17 September) to set up China's diplomatic mission in Malaysia
    The group, led by Mr. Li Chung Ying, was greeted at the airport by Malaysian Foreign Ministry officials.

    Malaysia become the first member of the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) to establish full diplomatic ties with Peking when Prime Minister Tun Abdul Razak signed an historic agreement with Chinese Premier Chou En Lai on May 31.

    The agreement ended a generation of hostility and improved prospects that three other ASEAN members -- the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand -- would follow suit.

    The fifth ASEAN partner, Indonesia, has had its relations with Peking suspended since the abortive Communist coup there in 1965.

    An advance party of Malaysian diplomats, led by Charge D'Affaires Dali Hashim, arrived in Peking on the same day to open Malaysian mission in China.
