Indonesian-Turkish relations can be traced back to the 12th century. Turkish Islamic scholars who visited Indonesia during that period played an important role in the spread of Islam in Indonesia.[4] Relations with the Ottoman Empire (Turkey's predecessor state) began with the 16th century Ottoman expedition to Aceh, in with the response to the Aceh Sultanate's request for assistance against the Portuguese in Malacca[5]

Turkey recognized Indonesia on 29 December 1949 and diplomatic relations were established in 1950. Turkish Embassy in Jakarta was opened on 10 April 1957.
