KUALA LUMPUR (Jan 09) -- Malaysia will probably take retaliatory action against the European Union's move to phase out palm oil from its bio-fuel program, the plantation industries and commodities minister said Tuesday.

"Of course it will not come to that, but if it is actually done, if our products are being discriminated, we will do the same thing," Mah Siew Keong said at a palm oil conference.
