CHICAGO (Reuters) - U.S.-based commodities trader Cargill Inc on Monday said it supported open markets following Indonesia's move to limit exports of palm oil.

The company said in a statement it would follow any regulations decided by the government.

Indonesian government officials told palm oil companies on Monday that an export ban announced late last week would cover shipments of refined, bleached, deodorized (RBD) palm olein but not crude palm oil, two industry sources told Reuters.
