The Commerce Department plans to amend its settlement agreement from a year ago and count the $361 million ZTE paid as a part of that, allowing the U.S.to claim a total penalty of as much as $1.7 billion, the sources told Reuters.

In total, the US will collect $1.7 billion from the Chinese phone company for violating sanctions against Iran and North Korea.

Ross also said that a compliance team picked by the US will be embedded at ZTE and that the Chinese company must change its board and executive team in 30 days. As a result, ZTE was banned from using us -made components for 7 years starting from April 2017. "It would also allow unfettered site visits to verify that United States components are being used as claimed by the company", Reuters stated.
