India to restrict imports of palm oil, other goods from Malaysia over J&K

In an apt reply to Malaysia over its remarks on Jammu and Kashmir, India is considering restricting imports of some products from Malaysia including palm oil, according to government and industry sources.

India is looking for ways to limit palm oil imports and may place restrictions on other goods from the country, said a government source and an industry source who participated in discussions led by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry on the planned restrictions.

The sources asked not to be named as the proposal was still under discussion.

India’s government was angered after Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said last month at the United Nations that India had “invaded and occupied” Jammu and Kashmir and asked New Delhi to work with Pakistan to resolve the issue.
