Poland's public TV channel TVP reports that the Chinese national is a sales director at Chinese telecoms firm Huawei's Polish branch.

"The Chinese national is a businessman working in a major electronics company. the Pole is a person known in circles associated with cyber business", Maciej Wasik, the deputy head of Poland's special services, told PAP.

USA intelligence agencies allege Huawei Technologies Cos Ltd is linked to China's government and that its equipment could contain "backdoors" for use by government spies.

It was also reported that both detainees pleaded not guilty and refused to give explanations regarding the case.

A Chinese Huawei "director" and a Polish cyber business specialist have been arrested in Poland on suspicion of spying for China, it has emerged.

The news agency quotes Huawei as offering no comment, beyond saying that it is aware of the case and is monitoring the situation.

Huawei has been blocked in the US since 2012, when a House Intelligence Committee report found it was a security risk and recommended that the government and private companies stop buying its network equipment.

Wang is a graduate of the Beijing University of Foreign Studies who formerly worked in China's consulate in Gdansk, according to his LinkedIn page.

State TV identified the Polish man as Piotr D., and said he was a high-ranking employee at the Internal Security Agency until 2011, where he served as deputy director in the department of information security. The company added it did not know if the investigation was linked to the employee's professional work, and that it would continue to cooperate with the authorities.

The detention comes after Canadian authorities arrested Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou in Vancouver in December 2018 at the request of U.S. law enforcement officials.

The arrests mark escalating concerns among western governments about the Chinese company's activities.

"We have no comment for the time being".

The United States wants Meng Wanzhou extradited to face charges that she misled banks about the company's business dealings in Iran.
