The U.S. Department of Commerce has banned American companies from selling components to telecommunications firm ZTE after the Chinese company allegedly made false statements to U.S. regulators. ZTE, which makes smartphones and telecommunications network gear, is a customer of Qualcomm. It’s unclear how the export order might affect the San Diego cellular technology company. Qualcomm declined to comment. On its website, ZTE says it is the fourth largest supplier of smartphones in the U.S., serving all four major wireless operators with low and mid-price handsets — including devices for pre-paid plans. Efforts to reach ZTE America in Richardson, Texas, were unsuccessful. A call to the Department of Commerce was not returned

If President Donald Trump presses Kim Jong Un to give up his nuclear arsenal when they meet, he’ll be asking the North Korean leader to surrender more than a half century’s labor. North Korea has as many as 60 nuclear weapons, an achievement spanning three generations of Kims. They’ve repeatedly chosen the bomb as the best guarantee of survival despite decades of negotiations, international sanctions and threats of war. Nuclear weapons have also become central to the regime’s identity — and its propaganda. North Korea’s status as a “nuclear state” is enshrined in its constitution, and Kim recently built monuments to commemorate last year’s tests of intercontinental ballistic missiles capable of

The U.S. military will cut about 245 South Korean jobs by the end of September as garrisons shrink with the long-delayed relocation of most forces to new hubs south of Seoul, officials said.
