[Hong Kong] Hong Kong stocks fell in the first few minutes of trade on Monday after China called off planned trade talks with the United States, fuelling fears of an escalation of their long-running tariff standoff.

The Hang Seng Index slipped 0.72 per cent, or 200.87 points, to 27,752.71 in early trade.

Mainland Chinese markets are closed for a public holiday.
