Financial Secretary John Tsang urges Occupy Central protesters to consider Hong Kong’s long-term interest when planning their next move.
Speaking to the media today, Mr Tsang said everyone - protesters, Police officers and every citizen of Hong Kong - felt exhausted by the current events. Many in society feel deeply worried about the current situation.
He said he was also worried that violence incidents might happen, especially after watching the conflicts in Mongkok.
Mr Tsang said he believed that all members of society and the Government do not wish to see the foundation of Hong Kong destroyed.
He urges parties involved to set aside their differences, and try to resolve the current turmoil with wisdom and patience.
