In a statement that only addressed USA actions, China's Commerce Ministry said it is looking at the export controls on ZTE and urged the United States to provide "an impartial, fair and stable legal and policy environment".

Now, the department has determined that ZTE made false statements BIS in 2016, during settlement negotiations, and 2017, during the probationary period, related to senior employee disciplinary actions the company said it was taking or had already taken.

For ZTE itself, the latest USA action means one of the world's top makers of smartphones and communications gear will no longer be able to buy technology from American suppliers, including components central to its products. The company was also supposed to revoke the bonuses of any employees involved.

Britain's cyber-security watchdog has warned telecommunications companies against dealing with the Chinese manufacturer ZTE, citing "potential risks" to national security.

The NCSC said it would be "impossible" to manage risks to the telecommunications sector if ZTE equipment was deployed at scale and that using ZTE equipment and services would have a "long term negative effect" on the security of the UK.

For ZTE, it has been a rough 24 hours, with the United States government hitting the company with a USA export ban.
