US Vice-President Joe Biden has begun a trip to China by encouraging people to "challenge the government".

Biden told a group applying for visas to the US that "innovation can only occur where you can breathe free".

His visit is expected to focus on an air defence zone declared by China which covers islands controlled by Japan in the East China Sea.

Earlier Chinese state media warned that he should not repeat "mistaken remarks" about the zone.
