The Senate wrecked Trump’s deal to save ZTE

Senate to include measure blocking Trump's ZTE deal in defense bill

In a settlement with the U.S. Commerce Department, the company agreed earlier this week to pay a $1 billion fine, overhaul its leadership and meet other conditions, including putting $400 million in escrow in a U.S. -approved bank.

Chinese telecommunications giant ZTE Corp had about $3 billion wiped off its market value as it resumed trade on Wednesday after agreeing to pay up to $1.4 billion in penalties to the United States government.

The amendment will also ban government agencies from trading telecommunications equipment and services with Chinese telecom companies ZTE and Huawei, as well as from providing loans to or subsidizing either company, according to The Hill. On Wednesday in Hong Kong, they nosedived 40% to their lowest level in more than a year.

Dealing in the firm was suspended in April after USA authorities banned American businesses from trading with ZTE for 7 years due to alleged violations of the trade sanctions against Pyongyang and Tehran by the staff, which the Chinese corporation didn't punish.

As part of the order, ZTE must identify in detail to the Commerce Department all Chinese government ownership and control of ZTE, including public and private shares.

The deal would also require Macedonia revising its constitution. "Today is a hard day for the Republic of Macedonia ". Both countries agreed that the new name would be used both internationally and bilaterally.

White House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Sunday likened the deal to "three strikes you're out", referring to two prior violations ZTE committed under the sanctions agreement with the U.S. A Republican Senator from Arkansas says that ultimately he "would expect that there wouldn't be a ZTE" and that "the death penalty is an appropriate punishment for their behavior". Its Shenzhen shares fell by their 10 per cent limit to 28.18 yuan after it confirmed details of the agreement publicized by the US government on Monday.

ZTE, with a market value of around $20 billion before its shares were suspended in April, is the world's fourth-largest telecom equipment maker after Huawei Technologies, Ericsson and Nokia.

The decision to lift the U.S. ban on ZTE has faced sharp criticism from USA politicians, including from some Republicans.

Jeffries said it expected ZTE to pay its penalty in a few days and resume operations next week.

Zhongxing Telecommunications Equipment (ZTE) Corporation is a Chinese company headquartered in Shenzhen, Guangdong, China. The Commerce Department ban arose from a controversy in which ZTE failed to punish employees who were involved in illegally shipping U.S. equipment to Iran and North Korea.
