The Foreign Ministry has said in an early Saturday statement that it is paying close attention to Poland's arrest 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.
