No trade action on India after palm oil boycott: Mahathir

No trade action on India after palm oil boycott: Mahathir



Malaysia is too small of a nation to respond to India’s boycott of palm oil with trade retaliation, Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said on Monday.

“We are too small to take retaliatory action. We have to find ways and means to overcome that,” Mahathir told reporters in Langkawi, a resort island off the western coast of Malaysia.

India, the world’s largest edible oil buyer, this month halted Malaysian palm oil imports after Mahathir’s comments criticizing New Delhi over its policy on Kashmir.
