The Liberal Party chairman, Allen Lee Peng-fei, has written to Chinese premier Li Peng urging Beijing to take action over the Diaoyu Islands row. In the letter, Mr Lee called on the Central Government to formulate a specific policy on Diaoyu Islands and tackle the dispute at a country-to-country level with Japan. Mr Lee, also a Preparatory Committee member, said that the fact that Hong Kong people were expressing their anger strongly against Japan's recent claim demonstrated their patriotic sentiment for China as the handover approached. 'Hong Kong people's patriotic feeling and their persistence towards China's sovereignty and territorial integrity shows their sincerity for the handover. This should be valued,' he told the Chinese leader. Meanwhile, a minor scuffle erupted at the Japanese Consulate in the territory as a protester from a pro-Taiwan group stormed into the office in Exchange Square. 'I want the Japanese to know how the Chinese feel like when the Diaoyu Islands were forcibly seized,' said the protester, Christopher Chu Cho-yan. Mr Chu was among a group of eight members of the 123 Democratic Alliance who staged a protest.
