Malaysia concerned by Indian trade body's call to boycott its palm oil

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia said on Tuesday it viewed with “great concern” the decision by India’s top vegetable oil trade body to ask its members to stop buying Malaysian palm oil in protest over criticism of New Delhi’s action in disputed Kashmir.

“While we try to understand the underlying sentiment associated with the SEA (Solvent Extractors’ Association)advisory with respect to Malaysian palm oil imports, we feel this is a major set back in our progressing cooperation and working relations,” Malaysian Primary Industries Minister Teresa Kok said.
