BEIJING, June 3 (Yonhap) -- China's foreign ministry said Friday that it took note of U.S. media reports that Huawei Technologies Co., a Chinese telecom equipment maker, is facing a U.S. probe over its exports to North Korea, Cuba, Iran and Syria.

The U.S. Department of Commerce has ordered Huawei's U.S. units to clarify whether the Chinese company exported goods containing American technology to the rogue nations, The New York Times reported.

"I have noted relevant reports," China's foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters.

Hua did not elaborate further, citing Huawei's statement, which was reported by U.S. media, that the Chinese company has "abided by local laws and regulations."

The U.S. media reports came days before U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew arrive in Beijing for annual meetings on strategic and economic issues with senior Chinese officials.
