Zhang meets more pan-democrats
(08-18 17:33)

Four pan-democratic lawmakers said on Monday that the issue of national security dominated their talks on political reform with the Director of Beijing's Liaison Office in Hong Kong, Zhang Xiaoming.
One of the lawmakers, education sector representative Ip Kin-yuen, said he felt there was more of a focus on national security, when compared with his previous meeting with Zhang in May.
Another legislator who also held talks with Zhang -- Frederick Fung Kin-kee from the Association for Democracy and People's Livelihood -- said Zhang had told them that Beijing took the talks seriously.
Fung said he felt the National People's Congress Standing Committee -- which is expected to make a decision on Hong Kong's political reform path at the end of the month -- has not yet made up its mind on the issue.
The meeting was the second of four Zhang had scheduled with pan-democratic legislators.
He met Democratic Party lawmakers last week, and will hold talks with legislators from the Civic Party and the Labor Party on Tuesday. --RTHK
