BEIJING (Reuters) - Beijing said on Friday any travel ban imposed by the United States against members of China’s ruling Communist Party would be absurd and said such a move would amount to Washington standing in opposition to the entire population of China.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters during a daily briefing that no country or individual could stop China from its path.
