This caps off months of will-they-won't-they from Republicans, many of whom view the two major Chinese telecoms as national security threats.

During his visit to Fort Drum, Trump met with senior leaders and observed an air assault demonstration and sling load operation. Back in June, the US Senate passed a version of the bill that would have re-imposed an export ban that would have been a de facto death sentence for ZTE because ZTE is heavily dependent on components like Qualcomm chips and Google's Android operating system.

Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang urged the United States against implementing the disputed provisions of the law to avoid damaging China-U.S. relations.
