[Response] HKSAR Government Statement

Ruben posted about the HKSAR Government's press release/statement on Edward Snowden leaving HK today, and sorry for a pointless post, but since it's HK related, let's have it here already since everyone is talking about it (just what you ordered).

Have to say I agree with Ruben - that statement is so beautiful whether intentional or not. It reads like a very fine piece of PR and I should know! I think a handshake is deserved to whoever was in charge of writing the English press releases.

Would be interesting to see how the Chinese version(s) phrase this, but my Chinese is nowhere near high enough a standard to be able to read that. For the record - I read Traditional mostly.
