The Foreign Ministry has said in an early Saturday statement that it is paying close attention to Poland's detention of Huawei employee Wang Weijing.

The Chinese embassy in Warsaw held an immediate meeting with the Polish Foreign Ministry, asking the Polish side to notify China of details of the case as soon as possible and arrange an early consular visit, according to the statement.

The case should be properly handled in a just way according to law, and the legitimate rights and interests, safety and humanitarian treatment of Wang should be guaranteed, it said.

According to media reports, Poland's counter-intelligence service on Friday detained Wang and a Polish former senior intelligence agent in Warsaw on suspicion of spying.

Huawei released a statement on Sina Weibo, China's answer to Twitter, on Friday night, saying it is looking into the situation.

"Huawei complies with all applicable laws and regulations in the countries where it operates, and we require every employee to abide by the laws and regulations in the countries where they are based," said Huawei.
