These rare earths, which you rarely hear about, are materials for creating backlights for smartphones, make x-rays possible, and ensure the safe use of nuclear reactors.
- says the material of the news agency.
However, if someone wants to use the rare earth metals supplied by China against the PRC, then the Chinese people will not agree with this
- specify in "Xinhua" adding that Beijing has always adhered to the principles of openness in the rare earth industry.
Xinhua notes that the United States, taking unilateral steps to curb the technological development of other countries, does not take into account the factor of rare earth metals. At the same time, 80% of rare-earth metals are imported to the United States from China.
It is no secret that Beijing has always advocated cooperation and avoided confrontation. But now, if necessary, China will use the rare-earth "weapon". And if the mouthpiece of the Ministry of State Security (MGB) of China writes about this, then the likelihood of this is quite high.
It should be recalled that there are only 17 rare-earth metals: scandium, yttrium, lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium, neodymium, promethium, samarium, europium, gadolinium, terbium, dysprosium, holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium and lutetium.
