TOKYO -- Southeast Asia's palm oil exporters have the means to retaliate if the European Union imposes restrictions on the commodity, Indonesia's trade minister warned on Wednesday in an exclusive interview with the Nikkei Asian Review. 

In a discussion that spanned everything from free trade deals to North Korea, Enggartiasto Lukita also made it clear that Indonesia has no interest in joining the Trans-Pacific Partnership unless the U.S. returns to the fold.
