Local media identified the firm as Huawei Technologies Co and said the suspect was the sales director of its office in Poland.

Maciej Wasik, deputy head of Poland's special service, said the two arrested men "carried out espionage activities against Poland" and the operation to arrest them was underway for a long time.

Poland's state security agency arrested a Chinese businessman and a Polish national on Friday over allegations of spying, Poland's state news agency PAP reported.

Huawei, which makes telecommunications equipment and consumer electronics, said in a statement that it was "aware of the situation, and we are looking into it".

The Chinese government said it was "highly concerned" over reports of the arrest of a Chinese businessman for alleged espionage.

TVP reported that Huawei's office in Poland had been searched by the AWB, along with the offices of Orange Polska where the Polish national reportedly worked.

In December, Canadian authorities arrested a top Huawei executive, Meng Wanzhou, at the behest of US authorities as part of an investigation into alleged violations of USA trade sanctions.

Some European governments and telecom companies are following the USA lead in questioning whether using Huawei for vital infrastructure for mobile networks could leave them exposed to snooping by the Chinese government. "We have no comment for the time being", Huawei said in a statement.

The Chinese government retaliated against the arrest by detaining Michael Kovrig, a former Canadian diplomat, about a month ago, claiming he's a national security risk.

Nonetheless, intelligence bods recommended banning the use of the kit, and official blocks are in place for state-funded projects in the US, Australia and New Zealand.

TVP said the Polish national was a former agent of the internal security agency.

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