Ahead of NDAA Vote, Rubio Warns of Threat China’s ZTE Poses to U.S. National Security

Aug 1, 2018 | Press Releases

Washington, D.C. – Ahead of the Senate vote on the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) today, U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) will speak on the Senate floor to warn of the ongoing threat that Chinese telecommunications firm ZTE poses to U.S. national security after the bipartisan provision reinstating penalties against ZTE was stripped out of the NDAA FY 2019 Conference Report last month.

Rubio released a statement earlier this month after the U.S Department of Commerce announced it reached a deal with ZTE to lift a seven-year ban against the export of U.S. parts and components to the Chinese firm. Rubio and several of his colleagues had urged the chairmen of the Senate and House Armed Services committees to include the Senate-passed Cotton-Van Hollen-Schumer-Rubio amendment in the NDAA Conference Report.

Rubio’s remarks on the Senate floor will be broadcast on C-SPAN 2 and the U.S. Senate’s official website.
