Speaking after visiting the injured policeman in hospital early Friday morning, Tang said other people would be held responsible for encouraging violence in Hong Kong. The Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, also condemned the attack, as well as other illegal acts that took place on Thursday. She said it's clear they were intended to challenge the authority of the Hong Kong SAR.

In it, President Xi Jinping hailed the people of China for creating "a new world", warning that any foreign forces who try to bully the nation would get their heads bashed. He also vowed to reunify Taiwan with the mainland and ensure social stability in Hong Kong. Natale Ching reports:
