Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, Chief Executive of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR), condemned the violent acts that took place at the Liaison Office of the Central People’s Government and the violence in Yuen Long.
Lam made the remarks at a press conference on Monday.
“Violence is not a solution and violence will only bring more violence,” she said, adding that the violent acts challenged the national sovereignty and threaten the law and order in the SAR.
She stressed that these acts also challenged the bottom line of the “One Country, Two Systems” and hurt the Chinese people’s national feelings.
“The HKSAR government will deal with these acts in a serious manner in accordance with the law,” she added.
