HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Hong Kong Exchanges & Clearing's Chief Executive Charles Li on Friday sought to clarify on media coverage of a speech he delivered at an annual event of the London Metal Exchange, saying he was a "faithful believer" in the "One Country, Two Systems" principle under which Hong Kong enjoys the status of an autonomous region under Chinese sovereignty.

"Some Western media said I have criticized 'One Country, Two Systems' as having fundamental flaws. But I'm the most faithful believer in the arrangement as I think it is a great political experiment," Li told reporters at the stock exchange on Friday.
