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

China has welcomed a pledge from Donald Trump to help save ZTE, one of China’s biggest telecoms companies.

The firm has suspended operations after the US last month banned American companies from selling it components. ZTE had admitted to making illegal shipments to Iran and North Korea.

But Mr Trump has now tweeted he will work with President Xi to help ZTE get “back into business fast”, saying too many jobs in China were at risk.
