Metrotvnews.com, Jakarta: Coordinating Minister of Maritime Affairs Luhut Binsar Pandjaitan said Indonesia should control global nickel prices.

"It is controlled by the United Kingdom (UK). It is weird," said Luhut at his office in Jakarta on Tuesday (10/18).

Indonesia is the largest nickel producer in the world. However, the country currently implements mineral ore export ban.

"We are great country . We just do not realize it," he continued

"We will not revoke the mineral ore export ban," he stated.
