KUALA LUMPUR (REUTERS) - Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said on Friday (Oct 11) he had not received "anything official" from India, after Reuters reported that India was mulling over restricting imports of Malaysian palm oil and other products.

"That is only reported, but we have not received anything official," Tun Dr Mahathir told reporters.

India is considering restricting imports of some products from Malaysia, including palm oil, Reuters reported, citing government and industry sources, in reaction to Dr Mahathir slamming New Delhi over its actions in Kashmir.
