Xi will "wait for the mood of Hong Kong citizens to gradually calm down and then punish a very small number of die-hards", Hua said.
Hong Kong was a British colony from 1841 until sovereignty was returned to China in 1997.
"The chief executive apologises to the people of Hong Kong for this and pledges to adopt a most honest and humble attitude to accept criticisms and make improvements in serving the public", it said.
He said, "I believe she will communicate her apologies to the public in the near future".
Hong Kong's most prominent student activist Joshua Wong has called for the resignation of leader Carrie Lam, after walking free from prison.
In accordance with the universal values of freedom, democracy and human rights, anti-crime cooperation should not be codified in a bill that erodes human rights, the resolution said.
Prosecutions of activists, detentions without trial of five Hong Kong book publishers and the illegal seizure in Hong Kong by mainland agents of at least one mainland businessman are among moves in recent years that have unnerved many in the city of 7 million. "Withdraw the extradition bill". Some were skeptical that having Lam step down would help.
The vast majority of Hong Kong residents fled persecution, political chaos, or starvation in the Chinese mainland.
Wong served half of a two-month sentence for contempt related to his involvement in the 2014 protests advocating a more democratic elections process.
The government understands that protests against the legislation "have been made out of love and care for Hong Kong", a statement issued late Sunday by Hong Kong's government said. Police said 338,000 were counted on the designated protest route in the "peak period" of the march.
Drying out today, more storms in the week ahead
We remain dry until later on Tuesday night into Wednesday with new rain chances, and more showers and storms toward next weekend. According to the National Weather Service , multiple rounds of heavy rain are expected Saturday afternoon through 4 a.m.
But pro-democracy activists say that's not enough. They also called for the police to be held accountable for their brutality on June 12.
"Suspending the law but not cancelling it is like holding a knife over someone's head and saying, "I'm not going to kill you now", but you could do it any time", said Betty, an 18-year-old protester who just finished school. Critics feared the Beijing-backed extradition law would entangle people in China's notoriously opaque and politicised courts and damage the city's reputation as a safe business hub, sparking unprecedented turnouts.
The comments echoed remarks over the weekend from the government's Hong Kong and Macau policy office.
Almost 80 people were injured in this week's unrest, including 22 police officers, with both sides showing a willingness to escalate their behaviour to levels unseen before in the usually stable business hub.
"Even though the government did many things that we don't like and were very wrong, we can not demonize them, because this is not our faith request", he said.
A woman in black speaking for the protesters responded with her own microphone.
"The reports are mostly intended for domestic readers", said Cheung Siu Wai, a senior lecturer at Hong Kong Baptist University.
The city has witnessed unprecedented scenes with two record-breaking rallies a week apart punctuated by violent clashes between protesters and police armed with tear gas and rubber bullets.
They are among hundreds who stayed overnight after a huge protest Sunday against a bill that raised fears about China's control of Hong Kong.
China redoubled its support for Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam on Monday after days of protests against a planned extradition bill, and a source close to Lam said Beijing was unlikely to let her go even if she tried to resign.
Police had spent the morning pleading with a few hundred holdouts to clear the usually busy road and the group eventually relented without any confrontation.
