Despite CAA row, Malay PM says will speak out against 'wrong things'

Jan 14, 2020 18:49 IST

As Malaysia stares at a massive loss of palm oil business due to curbs imposed by India, Malay PM Mahathir Mohamad said on Tuesday that he would continue to speak out against "wrong things" even if it costs his country financially. India last week changed rules that effectively ban imports of refined palm oil from Malaysia. The move came after New Delhi objected to Mahathir’s criticism of India’s new citizenship law. Earlier, the 94-year-old premier accused India of invading the Muslim-majority region of Kashmir. But Mahathir told reporters, "We are concerned of course because we sell a lot of palm oil to India, but on the other hand we need to be frank and see that if something goes wrong, we will have to say it. If we allow things to go wrong and think only about the money involved, then I think a lot of wrong things will be done, by us and by other people".
