HONG KONG - Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam said on Tuesday her government would immediately set up a platform to hold dialogue with Hong Kong people of all backgrounds.

 

Speaking to reporters ahead of Tuesday's customary Executive Council meeting, Lam said she hoped a non-violent weekend assembly that saw tens of thousands take part, indicated peace was returning to the Special Administrative Region (SAR).

Sunday's protest was the calmest since latest demonstrations against a now-shelved extradition bill escalated in mid-June.

“All my principal officials and I are committed to listening to what the people have to tell us,” she said.
