The Independence of Singapore Agreement 1965 was an agreement between the Government of Malaysia and the Government of Singapore on 7 August 1965 that granted independence to Singapore. The Singapore Act 1966 followed the treaty.[2] The agreement included a Proclamation on Singapore to be made by Malaysian Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman; a different Proclamation of Singapore was made by Singapore prime minister Lee Kuan Yew.

As a result of the agreement, Singapore achieved full independence from Malaysia with effect from 9 August 1965.
