Transcript of remarks by CE at media session in Beijing (with photo/video)
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Chief Executive, Mr C Y Leung, at a media session in Beijing this afternoon (March 5):
Reporter: Mr Leung, why do you think that Premier Li has chosen to mention at this point in time about Hong Kong's "independence"? And how would the Hong Kong Government follow up on his remarks?
Chief Executive: We implement all the provisions of the Basic Law. Under the Basic Law, and this is also a political and constitutional reality, Hong Kong is part of China. We want to make sure that Hong Kong remains a part of China. Provided that everyone in Hong Kong takes a view that Hong Kong cannot and should not be an independent state, and Hong Kong will remain a part of China.

(Please also refer to the Chinese portion of the transcript.)
