Malaysia may refuse to buy fighters in the EU due to restrictions on the use of palm oil


Malaysia, the second largest palm oil producer in the world after Indonesia, is concerned about the EU’s plan to restrict the use of palm oil in biofuel production. The European plan calls for a reduction in the use of palm oil starting from 2023 and then for a total ban on it in 2030, because forests are being cut down due to its production, which leads to even greater climate change. AFP news agency writes that Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad said that Malaysia could refuse to buy fighters from European manufacturers, if the EU plan was implemented. According to him, the country can modernize its outdated fleet of fighters by purchasing new aircraft in China or in any other country.
