US President Donald Trump seeks to save Chinese jobs at ZTE ahead of trade talks



US President Donald Trump has said he wants to help save ZTE, one of China's biggest telecoms companies.

 
The firm has suspended operations after the commerce department last month banned US companies from selling it components for seven years.


ZTE pleaded guilty to making illegal shipments to Iran and North Korea.


Mr Trump tweeted that he was working with President Xi to ensure ZTE would get back into business fast, saying too many jobs in China were at risk.
