NEW DELHI (Bernama): An Indian trade body representing oilseed crushers has advised its members not to buy palm oil from Malaysia, taking a cue from New Delhi’s protest against Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s remarks on the Kashmir conflict.

“The recent developments pertaining to strained relations between our nation and Malaysia has put a lot of responsibility on our industry in view of huge imports of palm oil from that country, ” said Atul Chaturvedi, president of the Mumbai-based Solvent Extractors’ Association (SEA) of India on Monday (Oct 21).
