Anson Chan defends overseas talks
(04-22 12:06)

A former chief secretary, Anson Chan Fong On-sang, has defended her recent trip to North America to discuss Hong Kong's political development.
Chan said the international community attached importance to the territory's future.
Her two-week visit to the US and Canada with the founding chairman of the Democratic Party, Martin Lee Chu-ming, provoked scathing mainland criticism, with the pair being accused of having a "fetish for Western authorities" and inviting "foreign intervention".
Chan said she didn't think her trip would jeopardize the acceptance by Beijing of the political reform package suggested by her thinktank, Hong Kong 2020. --RTHK
