According to a Reuters’ reporter, the U.S. Commerce Department is going to place export restrictions on a big Chinese telecom manufacturer company ZTE Corp due to alleged violation of U.S. export controls on Iran.
Before shipment of any American-made equipment to ZTE the procedure will make it hard for the company to get U.S. products by requiring ZTE’s vendor to apply for an export license.
The Commerce Department notice that will be placed next week in the U.S. Federal Register, and hope the license applications mostly will be rejected.
In fact the Commerce Department’s inquiry determined on whether ZTE had managed American products via unknown front companies and then shipped them to Iran in violation of U.S. consents.
