Polish state TV reported that the Chinese man is a director at Huawei in Poland and that the Pole has worked at the Internal Security Agency, the agency that investigates spying and terrorism.

United States intelligence agencies allege that Huawei is linked to China's government and that "backdoors" built into its technology could be exploited by government spy agencies.

No evidence has been produced publicly and the firm has repeatedly denied the claims.

The U.S. criticism has led to a number of Western countries and companies to review whether they should allow Huawei's equipment to be used in their telecoms networks.

Poland has arrested a sales director for Chinese telecoms giant Huawei over allegations of working with Beijing's intelligence services.

"We are aware of the situation, and we are looking into it". Huawei and Orange could not immediately be reached for comment.

In a statement, Huawei said it "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".

The new track may not be from Roma's official soundtrack or score, but it has received approval from Cuarón himself. "Having access to the sounds used in the film proved to be invaluable", she and O'Connell said in a statement.

A spokesman for the agency, Stanislaw Zaryn, said the two were arrested on Tuesday.

Orange said in a statement that the Polish security services had gathered material related to an employee, but it did not know if the investigation was linked to the employee's professional work.

The TVP also said Polish security forces searched Huawei's Poland office Friday.

Geopolitical tensions over Huawei intensified after its chief financial officer, who is the daughter of founder Ren Zhengfei, was arrested December 1 in Canada in connection with US accusations that the company violated restrictions on sales of American technology to Iran.

"A Pole and a Chinese citizen have been arrested on suspicion of spying".

New Zealand, Australia and the United States have barred Huawei from involvement in their next-generation 5G mobile networks.

"The Chinese individual is a businessman working for an important telecommunications firm", Maciej Wasik, deputy head of Poland's special services, said. The agency did not immediately respond to Reuters' requests for comment.
