WTO calls out China on rare earth curbs, Kyodo says

The World Trade Organization said Friday that China’s curbs on rare earth exports were against the organization’s rules, Kyodo news agency reported Friday, citing a mid-term report on a case brought by the United States, the European Union and Japan. The global trade body is expected to make the final ruling by the end of the year after hearing submissions from China and other countries. Normally the contents of such mid-term reports, which serve as preliminary rulings, will go into the final reports, Kyodo said.
