ZTE to seek talks, legal action against 'unfair' US export ban

Friday 20 April 2018 | 08:48 CET | News
ZTE said it will seek talks with US officials and take legal action if necessary, after the US government "unfairly" imposed a ban on components from the US to the Chinese company. In its first official statement since the ban was announced, ZTE said the seven-year order will "not only severely impact the survival and development of ZTE, but will also cause damages to all partners of ZTE including a large number of US companies".
