Dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei talks with media as he arrives at the airport in MunichBy Ayhan Uyanik and Sui-Lee Wee MUNICH/BEIJING (Reuters) - Dissident Chinese artist and free speech advocate Ai Weiwei, whose passport was returned last week four years after it was confiscated, arrived in Germany on Thursday to visit his son and said Britain had denied his application for a six-month visa. Ai, 58, told reporters at Munich airport he was pleased to be able to travel again after authorities in Beijing returned his documents. When asked if he planned to visit London, he said: "Could be, could be if they give me visa." Earlier on Thursday he said Britain had denied his application for a six-month visa in favour of one with a shorter duration because he had not declared a "criminal conviction".
