AFP: Hong Kong chief defends Beijing appeal

From AFP, via the International Herald:

, Hong Kong’s caretaker chief executive, offered a defense Thursday of the government’s move to seek Beijing’s intervention to settle a dispute over the tenure of the next chief executive.

“I admitted that there is no other way to resolve the problems locally,” Tsang said at a briefing for foreign reporters. “The matter is not for my own making. I am not trying to make an excuse for it.”

Tsang said that appealing to Beijing was “absolutely necessary” while adding that it was not a failure of policies or arrangements.
