BEIJING (Reuters) - China's foreign ministry said on Friday that Beijing would welcome a visit by Britain's finance minister Philip Hammond, a day after the minister had said talk of deploying a British warship in the Pacific had complicated bilateral relations.

Foreign ministry spokesman Geng Shuang made the remarks during a daily news briefing.
