German auto giant Volkswagen has agreed to pay U.S. suppliers some $1.2 billion to settle claims emanating from the "Dieselgate" pollution scandal, the firm and suppliers said late Friday.Volkswagen issued a statement saying it had reached an agreement in principle with VW-branded suppliers after more than a month finalizing the accord.The deal comes on top of the $14.7 billion in U.S. compensation and fines Volkswagen has already agreed to pay regarding some 480,000 two-liter models.Volkswagen has been struggling to rise above the fallout of a scandal which emerged in September 2015 when it admitted installing so-called "defeat devices" in 11 million diesel vehicles worldwide, which increase exhaust treatment when the car detects it is undergoing regulatory off-road tests.
