Transcript of remarks by CE (with video)

    Following is the transcript of remarks by the Chief Executive, Mr C Y Leung, at a media session after attending an event this afternoon (May 19):

Reporter: How would you comment on Mr Zhang's visit this time, and in terms of security do you think that Mr Zhang had a chance to actually see the actual Hong Kong with such strict security?

Chief Executive: On the question of security preparation and preparedness, we rely entirely on the professional judgement of the Police Force in Hong Kong. We believe that the arrangements were necessary. The Chairman of the National People's Congress Standing Committee understands the situation in Hong Kong quite thoroughly. Obviously, it would have been more useful if the Chairman had more time to spare in Hong Kong, but we all know how precious his time is. It's not easy to take 48 solid hours out of his busy schedule, and it's important for such opportunities to be made available to Hong Kong in the future as well.
