Abstract

The billateral relationship between The Republic of Indonesia (RI) and The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) face some serious challenges in political field. For the example, many Indonesian Migrant Workers (IMW) in Saudi Arabia accept some serious problems. So do with the high gap between the total export value of Indonesia to Saudi Arabia and the vice versa. This condition causes Indonesia still not considered important by the KSA government. This matter is visible from span of 48 years between the official visit of King Faisal bin Abdul Aziz al Saud to Indonesia on 10-13 June 1970 until the official visit of King Salman bin Abdul Aziz al Saud to Indonesia on 1-12 March 2017. This research aims to discuss the dynamics of billateral relations between Indonesia and Saudi Arabia in political fields. Especially since the post-official visit of King Faisal untill King Salman’s offivial visit to Indonesia. Then, the analysis knife used in this research is the concept of interdependence and the strong state theory. The results of this study are also useful to evaluate the extent to which primordialism factors between Indonesia and Saudi Arabia are important in strengthenning billateral relation between the two countries. Particularly, the identity of Indonesia as the largest Moslem country in the world, and the largest number of Hajj Pilgrims in the world.
