Congress May Block ZTE’s Bid to Resume US Operations

It is said that in the coming weeks, the US Congress may block the Trump Administration’s move to allow Chinese telecommunications giant ZTE to resume its business in the US when the Senate votes on the measure as part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

If the defense policy bill passes, it may be possible for the ZTE provision to get thrown out during the negotiations for the final version of the NDAA.

The House NDAA includes a separate provision prohibiting the US government agencies from using “risky” technology from ZTE or Huawei, which are considered to be “linked to the Chinese Communist Party’s intelligence apparatus.”
