MohdKhairuddinAmanRazali added that he wanted to send a delegation to India as soon as possible in an effort to improve ties between the two countries.


India, the world's biggest consumer of edible oil, this year set curbs on palm oil purchases from Malaysia in retaliation for comments by then prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad, criticising New Delhi's policy on the Himalayan region of Kashmir.
