"We must adjust and sort out foreign investments because each country must have national security," Santoso said when he arrived at the venue of the fifth round of the presidential debate, Jakarta, Saturday.
Santoso's statement explained the intention of Vice Presidential candidate Sandiaga Uno to boost foreign and domestic investments.
If foreign investment is beneficial, then it should not be stopped or rejected, Santoso said.
"If foreign investment reduces our national security, it should be stopped," he said.
