One of China’s top tech companies has lashed out at the US government’s move to prevent it from buying technology from American companies.
ZTE (ZTCOF), which sells smartphones and other telecommunications equipment around the world, said Friday that the ban imposed this week by the US Commerce Department was "extremely unfair" and that the company "cannot accept it."
It warned in a statement that the move "not only endangers ZTE, but also hurts ZTE’s cooperative partners, including many American companies."
The seven-year ban affecting ZTE, which will take a toll on the company’s US suppliers such as Qualcomm (QCOM), comes at a time of severe tensions between China and the United States over trade and technology.
The Commerce Department said Monday that ZTE had lied to US officials about steps it had taken to punish employees who violated US sanctions against North Korea and Iran. The Chinese company last year agreed to pay a $1.2 billion fine after a US investigation found it had illegally shipped telecommunications equipment to the blacklisted countries.
Instead of punishing those involved, "ZTE paid full bonuses to employees that had engaged in illegal conduct, and failed to issue letters of reprimand," the Commerce Department said.
ZTE said Friday that the Commerce Department was ignoring the "arduous efforts" it has made to follow export rules.
"ZTE will not give up on solving the issue through dialogue and communication, and is also determined to safeguard our legitimate rights through law," the company said.
ZTE shares have been suspended since the Commerce Department announced the ban.
