Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has stood firm on speaking out against India’s actions in Occupied Kashmir and its new citizenship law, says he would continue to speak out against wrong things even if it costs his country financially.


Talking to journalists in Kuala Lumpur, Mahathir said we are concerned about India’s new curbs on import of Malaysian palm oil, but on the other hand, we need to be frank and when something goes wrong, we need to say it.

He said Malaysia may now need to find a solution after the boycott of its palm oil by Indian palm oil refiners and traders.

Mahathir’s comments against India’s actions in Occupied Kashmir and the controversial citizenship law caused Indian palm oil importers to stop buying the commodity from Malaysia on New Delhi’s instruction.
