London - Britain's finance minister George Osborne said the government would support a possible takeover of pharmaceutical firm AstraZeneca by US drugmaker Pfizer provided such a deal delivered jobs for Britons.

“Our sole interest here is in securing good jobs in Britain, good manufacturing jobs, good science jobs,” Osborne said when asked by reporters about a possible deal.

“That's what I'm interested in and we'll support any arrangement that delivers that for Britain,” he said. - Reuters
