Abstract
It is unfortunate that some statements made by Zhang Xiaoming, director of the Liaison Office of the Central People's Government in the HKSAR, caused such a stir, not for the substance of what he said but for the rhetoric. Like the white paper issued by the State Council last year, The Practice of the "One Country, Two Systems" Policy in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, what was said substantively was construed to be something else - something that could add ammunition to the fire of distrust over the intent and commitment of Beijing to uphold the "One Country, Two Systems" framework in Hong Kong.
