A report from December 5 is saying, U.S. navy ship "Cowpens" [i.e. CG-63], a cruiser belonging to the Ticonderoga-class, had the opportunity to keep watch on China's navy ship [the aircraft carrier] Liaoning in the maritime region of the South [China] Sea. When a Chinese ship for amphibious warfare "headed on to run up against" it, the U.S. ship applied emergency power to avoid mutual collision. The report is quoting as well an official from the U.S. State Department as saying the U.S. government has lodged a protest with China by means of diplomatic and military channels.
