The world is anticipating an annual iron ore production loss of 70 million metric tons after Brazilian state regulators revoked the license for the second-largest iron ore mine owned by Vale (NYSE: VALE) – the world’s largest iron ore miner – on February 5, Bloomberg reported (http://nnw.fm/tAeU3). The 30 million metric tons of production lost at this mine are in addition to Vale’s earlier announcement that it is taking 10 of its mines with upstream tailings dams out of production, representing 40 million metric tons of production. The license revocation is providing strong indications that company operations are not going to return to normal in the near future.

NKorea says it tested new weapon, wants Pompeo out of talks

Apr 19, 2019

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea said Thursday that it had test-fired a new type of "tactical guided weapon," its first such test in nearly half a year, and demanded that Washington remove Secretary of State Mike Pompeo from nuclear negotiations. The test, which didn't appear to be of a banned mid- or long-range ballistic missile that could scuttle negotiations, allows North Korea to show its people it is pushing ahead with weapons development while also reassuring domestic military officials worried that diplomacy with Washington signals weakness. Separately, the North Korean Foreign Ministry accused Pompeo of playing down the significance...

Analysis: Kim, returning to military optics, turns up heat

Apr 19, 2019

TOKYO — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is cautiously turning up the heat after his unsuccessful summit with President Trump in Hanoi two months ago. Returning to military optics for the first time in five months, Kim on Tuesday paid a surprise visit to an Air Force base to inspect fighter combat readiness and followed that up the next day by supervising the test of what the North's official media described ominously but ambiguously — and without any photos or video — as a new type of "tactical guided weapon." The military-related posturing comes after Kim expressed deep disappointment...

Apr 19, 2019

BEIJING — Stock markets were subdued Thursday as investors digested corporate earnings reports and mixed economic data, with some traders in Europe preparing for a long weekend. London's FTSE 100 fell 0.1% to 7,460 and Frankfurt's DAX rose 0.5% to 12,208. France's CAC 40 gained 0.3% to 5,576. A survey of manufacturing activity in Europe showed the sector stabilized in April after months of declines. Some analysts took that as evidence that the economy could pick up in the second half of this year after a sharp slowdown. That seemed to shore up sentiment in Europe, which is heading for...

Apr 19, 2019

TOKYO — Japan's top court said Thursday it has rejected an appeal by former Nissan Chairman Carlos Ghosn's lawyers against his extended detention after his fourth arrest on allegations of financial misconduct. The decision upholds the extension of his detention through April 22 that was approved Monday by the Tokyo District Court. The Supreme Court ruling was made Wednesday and conveyed to foreign media on Thursday. Ghosn was first arrested in November and charged with under-reporting his retirement compensation and with breach of trust. He was released March 6 on bail, but was arrested again on April 4 on fresh...
