Washington has made a clarification to Beijing to dismiss a Japanese media report on a so-called US-Japan joint combat plan for "retaking" China's Diaoyu Islands, the Foreign Ministry confirmed on Friday.

The Japanese government has failed in its latest attempt to intimidate China by fabricating a powerful military support from its traditional ally over the islands dispute, analysts said.

Japanese leading newspaper Nikkei Business Daily quoted an unnamed source of the US defense authorities on Oct 25 that the US and Japanese governments have designed a joint combat plan to deal with the emergent scenario that China seizes the Diaoyu Islands.
