Senate leaders agreed Monday to include language in the annual defense spending bill that would reverse the Trump administration's decision to save Chinese telecommunications company ZTE after it was caught violating the terms of a 2017 penalty agreement by making illegal sales to Iran and North Korea.

The move is a rebuke to President Donald Trump on the eve on his summit meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, after Trump had pledged to China’s leader that he would try to save the state-controlled company from a crippling sanction. The language will be part of an amendment in the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, a $716 billion defense policy bill, H.R. 5515 (115).
