Transcript of remarks by CE at media session in Beijing (with photos/video)
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Chief Executive, Mr C Y Leung, at a media session in Beijing this afternoon (March 13):
Reporter: Mr Leung, your chat with President Xi Jinping, can you tell us exactly what did he tell you? And also, about your appointment, 13 people voted against it, 16 abstained. Do you think that's because of the ICAC investigation in the UGL deal?
Chief Executive: I did not know. If you knew, you should tell me. What President Xi said to me were basically words of encouragement.
Reporter: Did he criticise you in any way?
Chief Executive: No.
