China has avoided directly criticising the United States for lying about the course of its nuclear aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, but warned that such actions might compromise regional peace.

"I$3 n our effort to always be open about what we're doing, we said that we were going to change the Vinson's upcoming schedule", Mattis explained, telling reporters that the Vinson was operating up and down the western Pacific.
