TOKYO -- The U.S. would face dire consequences if it decides to decouple itself from China over an ongoing trade and technology dispute, said a Chinese expert at a panel discussion hosted here Thursday by Nikkei's annual Future of Asia conference.

"If the current U.S. approach has the implication of depriving China of any stake in the international order, that means that China will become outside the international order with no stake," said Jia Qingguo, Professor at Peking University. "Just imagine what's going to happen. It's going to be a very dangerous world." he added. "I would counsel caution on this."
