Reporter: Is the South Korean consulate office being attacked by North Korean agents and that’s why the Police’s counter-terrorism officers were being deployed to protect their safety?
Secretary for Security: I would not comment on the operations of our Police Force, but I can assure everybody that Hong Kong is a very safe city.
Reporter: Can you let us know when the formal agreement on the notification mechanism can be signed by both sides?
