Hong Kong's Lam: 'We Will Start Immediately a Platform for Dialogue'
Updated on

Hong Kong protesters rejected leader Carrie Lam’s attempt to meet one of their key demands, raising questions about whether a compromise can be reached even as both sides seek to lower tensions.

Lam pledged to immediately establish a platform for dialogue, investigate complaints against police and institute a wide-ranging fact-finding study into the demonstrations. While details remained scarce, she said the platform would involve people from different walks of life, political views and stances. She said authorities would enlist international experts to conduct the fact-finding study, which would be released to the public in six months.
