OSAKA -- China's ambassador to Japan warned that any intention the U.S. has to decouple its economy from his country's would be impossible, citing the large presence of Chinese companies in global supply chains.

"China has become a part of the global economy, and has merged with the global supply chain," Kong Xuanyou told an audience in Osaka on Thursday.
