China said on Wednesday that it hopes Britain will take effective and practical steps to repair relations affected by British Prime Minister David Cameron's meeting with the Dalai Lama in May.

It is Britain instead of China that should assume complete responsibility for the damaged relations, Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Weimin told a regular news conference, responding to a question on whether China indefinitely suspended ministerial meetings with Britain to protest the so-called private meeting.

Lord Green, the Trade and Investment minister, and Jeremy Browne, the Foreign Office minister, saw planned meetings with Chinese ministers either cancelled or palmed off on junior officials last month, the Telegraph said on Tuesday.
