US market turmoil continues

Japanese Prime Minister Kan and Mongolian Prime Minister Batbolt met in Tokyo on Sunday, 3rd, and reached some agreements on their cooperation between the two countries, including research for rare metals buried in the Mongolian earth.

As China uses their cards to negotiate Japan over the sea territorial issue threatening to stop rare metal exporting to Japan, businesses and industries depending heavily on the Chinese rare metals need swift move to change the direction to other countries with those minerals.
